Sitrin Stars and Stripes event kicks-off annual run

NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (WKTV) - The annual Sitrin Stars and Stripes Run Walk got a running start this Wednesday night, with a kick-off party.

The event took place at Sitrin in New Hartford. Last year was the first year for the run walk. This year the event will take place in October at SUNYIT.

The run walk is an event that is intended to raise funds for Sitrin projects. This year organizers hope to raise funds for Sitrin's lodge / medical treatment center.

"The reason why we had this event tonight is to thank everyone who helped us last year," said Rosemary Bonacci, vice president of development and communication. "Our goal was $30,000 and $72,000 was raised in less than 2 months."
