“Every dollar that we raise goes to curing cancer. The research and development that they’re able to do could some day cure someone in their family or someone they know close to their heart,” IBEW Local 98 Business Manager Mark Lynch said. “Anything that our membership can do to help raise money to cure childhood cancer we’re going to continue to do.”
IBEW Local 98 also made a $20,000 donation to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.MORE NEWS: Phillies' Bryce Harper Out Indefinitely With Broken Thumb After Being Hit By Pitch In 4-2 Win Over Padres
