Cowboys and Crowns Crushin’ Cancer fundraiser takes place at the Buffalo Chip Saloon & Steakhouse on August 26 from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m.

FusionHR, along with several Phoenix-based businesses is proud to host a fundraiser for Sammy, a five-year-old Chandler resident with stage IV neuroblastoma cancer.

Cowboys and Crowns Crushin’ Cancer is taking place August 26, 2016, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Buffalo Chip Saloon & Steakhouse. The Buffalo Chip is currently open for business as they continue to rebuild the main building after devastating fire in December of 2015.

Sammy (https://www.gofundme.com/vf9s5h9), the fundraiser beneficiary, is a vibrant five-year-old diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma in April of 2015. Since that time, Sammy has received countless chemotherapy and radiation treatments as well as a bone marrow transplant. As the family began to see the light at the end of the tunnel, hoping to move to a disease maintenance status, they received devastating news. It was discovered, after a series of seizures, that the cancer has spread to his brain.

Treatment options are limited and require a specialized chemotherapy at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York. This means additional extended time away from work for Sammy’s parents as well as travel expenses, and new medical expenses.

Banding together, FusionHR hopes to lessen the burden on this family by hosting a fundraiser in Sammy’s honor. The Buffalo Chip Saloon & Steakhouse (http://buffalochipsaloon.com/) is donating all proceeds from a special BBQ buffet to the family. In addition, Phoenix-based business, FusionHR, Clements Insurance Agency, Marken Corporation and Infinity Software Solutions have pledged to match donations.

The evening will include live, professional bull riding, and appearances from Miss Arizona 2016, Katelyn Niemiec, Miss Arizona’s Outstanding Teen 2016, Elan Morris. The public is welcome, please RSVP here - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cowboys-and-crowns-crushin-cancer-tickets-27099936640
