ALBION – The Albion Rotary Club donated $1,000 to the Knights-Kaderli Fund, which for the past 26 years has provided financial assistance to families in Orleans County that are battling cancer.

Two families have pushed to raise money for the fund after Richard Knights died from cancer in 1984. Five years later Sue Scharping Kaderli died from the disease.

Knights-Kaderli distributes about $50,000 annually to help families with expenses while battling cancer.
