MILTON, Ga. – The ladies of Crooked Creek are planning their annual Round Robin Aug. 28 to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

One of the residents in Crooked Creek has leukemia. Mary Elizabeth Paris, 11, of Milton, has completed chemotherapy for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and is scheduled to receive a bone marrow transplant from her brother in August.

For their tenth annual Round Robin, the theme this year is "Superman," dedicated to Mary Elizabeth Paris.

"Each year we strive to improve our event and raise even more money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society," said Kristin Cleare, one of the organizers. "We are very proud that 100 percent of the money raised goes to that great cause. Everything that is needed to make the day a success - tennis, a silent auction, lunch and goodie bags - is either donated or provided through one of our sponsors. We also work very hard to make this a fun, positive event."

Over the last ten years, the Round Robin has raised $63,000 for research and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.

The 10th annual Crooked Creek Round Robin is Aug. 28 from 9 a.m.- 1 p.m., with lunch at the Clubhouse. A $50 donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is required. RSVP to Kristin Cleare at cleare5@att.net.
