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.

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS exists to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. We are the voice for all blood cancer patients and we work to ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients. As there are no means of preventing or early screening for most blood cancers, the LLS research agenda is focused on finding cures. LLS drives research in areas of unmet medical need, and helps to bridge the gap between academic discovery and drug development. LLS identifies and funds the most promising blood cancer research projects and forges partnerships with academic institutions, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies to accelerate the development of new therapies. Additionally, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk funds treatments that are saving the lives of patients today. LLS is making cures happen by providing patient support services, advocating for lifesaving treatments and pioneering the most promising cancer research anywhere. And it's all happening now. Not someday, but today. Each year friends, families and coworkers form teams to raise money in support of our mission. LLS is hosting a Lancaster “Light the Night” event on Friday, September 29th. All proceeds go directly to the foundation. Please visit LLS.org for more information on how you can help.
