Fairfield, CT, November 16, 2011— More than 3,000 children and families are expected to show up for a day of games and building with LEGOs to support people affected by cancer, during CancerCare’s Third Annual Blocks of Love LEGO Expo.
The Expo takes place this Saturday, November 19 at Fairfield Ludlowe High School in Fairfield, Connecticut. To date, Blocks of Love has raised more than $250,000 in support of CancerCare’s free, professional support services for children and families facing cancer.
“Our Blocks of Love events really bring the community together to help raise funds for people affected by cancer,” said CancerCare CEO Helen H. Miller, LCSW. “I’m always amazed by the fantastic LEGO masterpieces that children and their families create.”
Blocks of Love was created in 2009, when a group of kids and their parents combined their passion for LEGO and their desire to help children who were affected by cancer by building elaborate LEGO projects and asking donors to pledge in support of their efforts.
There are many ways to support Blocks of Love and CancerCare. Supporters can become LEGO builders, support a builder through a donation, donate their own gently used blocks, or attend the expo as a spectator.
Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door on the day of the event. Blocks of Love kicks off at 10:00 am and ends at 4:00 pm.
