This event is held in memory of Sam Beres, who lost his two-year battle with leukemia in April 2000 at the age of six.
Proceeds from the event support leukemia and other cancer research being conducted by David A. Margolis, MD, Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW).
The fund's name, the Sam Memorial "HOOT" Fund, reflects its goal to turn Hematologic Oncology Treatment (HOT) units into "Happily Out Of Tenants" (HOOT) units.
Since 2000, St. Agnes has raised more than $160,000 for leukemia research at MCW.
