The Legend Continues Program
Legend has it that in the 13th Century, in the area of Yorkshire England, Robin of Loxley, better known as Robin Hood, made a name for himself by lightening the purses of the wealthy to benefit the needy.
Today, the legend continues. We’ll provide you with a legendary meal before we lighten your purse and invite you to participate in selecting a worthy organization. Loxley’s will donate 5% of your food bill to the featured organization you choose. Being part of a legend has never been so easy or so much fun.
We encourage charities and organizations to participate in this program by becoming one of our featured charities. Click here to apply.
This Month's Charities
Mesothelioma Awareness and Treatment
Mesothelioma is an aggressive asbestos-related cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, abdomen, or heart and is very difficult to diagnose.
Millions of Americans are at risk today because of all the asbestos that remains in occupational settings; in buildings, homes, offices and schools, plus it is sill used in a variety of products. Tons of asbestos fell from the World Trade Center of 9/11.
Mesothelioma has a long latency period. It generally takes 20-50 years from exposure until characteristics of mesothelioma are evident. Even low dose incidental exposures can cause the cancer. The exposures of the past are leading to an epidemic of the disease today.
It is important that asbestos be banned in the US to protect future generations from this deadly disease. Treatment and research funding is lagging far behind other cancers. As of today, there is no known cure. Your donation will help advance research and treatment of this deadly disease.
Proceeds benefit the International Mesothelioma Research Program, www.brighamandwomens.org/mesothelioma
For a fun day of golf and to celebrate a life lost to mesothelioma, please join us at Heritage Hills Resort on September 25, 2014 for the Jeff Crist Memorial Golf Outing.
Vickie's Angel Foundation
Vickie’s Angel Foundation is a nonprofit with a mission of helping
families fighting cancer who have difficulties paying their bills during the challenging times of fighting their cancer. Our goal is to take away the financial worry from the family, providing a temporary bridge that allows them to focus entirely on beating their disease.
Our financial help is for both medical and non-medical expenses focusing on the basic necessities to survive. Examples are rent/mortgage payments, car expenses, food expenses, house heating expenses and co-pays. We help in blocks of three months at a time.
Our goal is to allow the family to focus on their cancer and getting better while allowing Vickie’s Angel Foundation to help them with paying their bills. At the same time to offer comfort with Love, Faith and Hope. Since 2003, we have raised over $1,000,000 and have had over 500 applications. None of our money raised goes to research. It all goes to the families.
