NEW YORK – On Saturday, October 22nd, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker joined the Villagers Club at their 6th Annual Leisure Village Cancer Awareness Walk. The event took place at Leisure Village and included music by The Village Band, tables with local vendors, and the “Shed the Meds” program with the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department.
“I would like to thank the Villagers Club for their dedication to cancer awareness and to cancer research,” said Legislator Anker. “This cause is very close to my heart, and I commend the residents for their fundraising efforts.”
The Villagers Club, led by President Elizabeth Conlon, was established in 2008.
