BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Longtime Kern County Cancer fundraiser and patient advocate Leslie Knox will announce the line-up for the upcoming "Fight for Life" charity event on Thursday.
The "Fight for Life" event sponsored by Advanced Industrial Services and its generous community partners have generated more than one million over the past five years.
This year, the event will announce a fund that will provide for families in Kern County who need any treatment and financial assistance such as covering their insurance premiums, families without insurance, or other needs.
All of the proceeds will stay in Kern County to benefit families battling cancer regardless of where they received that treatment.
Tickets and additional information for the "Fight for Life" event on Nov. 10, can be found at www.fightforlifeevent.org or Vallitix.
