Having Fun & Raising Awareness - The Warriors Against Melanoma Poker Run

Shorty Pants Lounge is proud to be involved in this Saturday's Warriors Against Melanoma Poker Run.  Your favorite Cajun restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is one of the six waterfront card stops.  Everyone participating in this event will learn valuable information about a dangerous skin cancer and raise money for the cause all while having a great afternoon of fun on the water. 

Warriors Against Melanoma (WAM) was founded in April 2014 by a stage 3 melanoma survivor.  It is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to raising awareness of this terrible disease, raising funds for research and eventually a cure, and also directly assisting families dealing with melanoma.  A very scary fact is that one person dies every hour, every day in the United States from this.  Last year WAM donated nearly $30,000 to the cause.
