DEN­TON — Bul­lock’s Deli in Den­ton en­joyed a suc­cess­ful seventh an­nual BBQ Cook­out for Leukemia Aware­ness Cruise in and Car Show Satur­day, Sept. 15.

About 700 chicken din­ners were sold dur­ing the car show, which fea­tured about 50 ve­hi­cles. The event also in­cluded a silent auc­tion, raffle, moon bounce and face paint­ings for the kids.

Raf­fles in­cluded a draw­ing for an AR-15 ri­fle with the Leukemia and Lym­phoma So­ci­ety logo on it, which was do­nated by The Gun­fa­ther in Den­ton. Tro­phies for the car show were do­nated by Tuck­a­hoe Farms. The corn in the chicken din­ners were do­nated by Clay­ton Farms.

Money raised at the event will go to the Leukemia and Lym­phoma So­ci­ety of the East­ern Shore. In the past, in­di­vid­ual car shows have raised about $25,000 for the Leukemia and Lym­phoma So­ci­ety.

The Bul­locks con­tinue the an­nual cook­out and car show in honor of Angie Bul­lock, who died from can­cer in March 2013. She was di­ag­nosed with leukemia in April 2011 and re­ceived her first bone mar­row trans­plant in July 2011. She be­gan to re­cover but found out the leukemia had come back.

“I’m so ap­pre­cia­tive for the com­mu­nity, and for how they con­tinue Angie’s legacy,” said Angie’s sis­ter Michele Bul­lock Amal­fi­tano. “It warms the heart each year see­ing the fa­mil­iar faces out here and the new ones who want to come to help sup­port the cause.”

Amal­fi­tano said the fam­ily con­tin­ues to raise aware­ness for leukemia and lym­phoma so peo­ple can de­tect the dis­ease in its early stages.

“The big­gest part of this is to stress an early warn­ing,” she said. “Pay at­ten­tion the your symp­toms be­cause they are very sim­i­lar to ev­ery­day ill­nesses. You need to catch it early be­cause there are ways to treat the ill­ness. The Leukemia and Lym­phoma So­ci­ety of the East­ern Shore does an out­stand­ing job for our com­mu­nity, and they help so many peo­ple.”

The Leukemia and Lym­phoma So­ci­ety of the East­ern Shore sur­passed a mile­stone in June by rais­ing $507,261 for the sixth an­nual Man and Woman of the Year cam­paign.

Nine can­di­dates, six women and three men, spent 10 weeks in­ten­sively fundrais­ing for LLS blood can­cer re­search ef­forts in hopes of be­ing the 2018 Man or Woman of the Year. Each can­di­date was backed by a team of fam­ily and friends to help them host fundrais­ing events.

Each year at the gala, LLS of the East­ern Shore presents the An­gela M. Bul­lock Cit­i­zen­ship Award to the can­di­date who has shown im­mense com­pas­sion to­ward the mis­sion of the Leukemia and Lym­phoma So­ci­ety and di­rectly fo­cused on in­cor­po­rat­ing that into his or her cam­paign.

LLS gave out three awards this year with a fo­cus in vol­un­teerism, com­mu­nity in­volve­ment and mis­sion. The win­ners were Becky Kish, Heather Cole­man and Marcy Par­lett.
