UTICA, NY – Bites, brews, and tunes.

That’s what people were enjoying Sunday.

And they were doing so for a good cause.

The 2nd annual Bites, Brews, and Tunes Festival to benefit the Neighborhood Center took place at MVCC’s Utica campus.

For a small fee, attendees enjoyed bites from local food vendors.

Brews of local craft beverages.

And tunes from 3 local bands.

Mark Pacilio, the Director of Operations at the Neighborhood Center, estimates they assist an average of 40,000 people a year by offering a variety of services to help troubled youth and their families.

“We’ve got many adults in the area that say ‘You helped me many years ago when I was a kid, and because of you I am what I am today.’ That’s the kind of thing we like to hear because we want to make a difference. We’re trying to build strong communities. That’s what the Neighborhood Center is all about.”
