The Dude Hates Cancer, a Lebowski-themed fundraising campaign in Los Angeles that culminates in a laid-back bowling tournament, raises money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Since it began in Philadelphia in 2006, The Dude Hates Cancer has raised over half a million dollars for LLS and is now an official campaign of the organization.
The ethos behind The Dude Hates Cancer Los Angeles is to provide a relaxed, Dude-like outlet for well-intentioned achievers who want to do something about cancer. That’s why we end with a bowling tournament. We can’t imagine The Dude partaking in a long-distance run or attending a fancy soiree to raise money, but he most certainly would bowl. And so that’s what we do. Right here in Los Angeles.
