Moorestown Cancer Survivor Donates $10K+ to Komen Walk

Township tax collector Dorothy Samartino raised more than $10,000 for breast cancer awareness, including $8,273 from last month's Moorestown Night.

Between Moorestown Night and her own individual fundraising, township tax collector and breast cancer survivor Dorothy Samartino was able to donate more than $10,000 to the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk.

Samartino is participating in the walk this weekend in Philadelphia. According to township clerk Patricia Hunt, Samartinio's generous contribution made her one of the top 10 fundraisers at the walk, out of thousands of participants.  

Hunt, along with several other township employees, organized last month's Moorestown Night at the Camden Riversharks game as a tribute to Samartino. Through T-shirt and ticket sales, as well as a gift basket auction, they were able to raise $8,273 from the event, said Hunt, all of which was donated to the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk.

Samartino will walk 60 miles throughout Philadelphia this weekend. For more information about the 3-Day Walk, visit their website.
