UTICA, N.Y. – A local nonprofit, 315K For the Cure, is partnering with The Celtic Harp in Utica to raise money for the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.

They have organized a ‘Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl’ on Saturday, Oct. 12, beginning at 12 p.m., where people can travel to five locations, including The Celtic Harp, O’Donnell’s Irish Pub and Grill, 5 Points Public House, Lukin’s and Luna’s of Varick, to enjoy drink specials and music.

All of the proceeds raised at the event will be donated to the children’s hospital.

315K For the Cure is an organization dedicated to helping families battling pediatric cancer in the region. Colin LaReaux and Brooke Hoffman founded 315K For the Cure five years ago after both suffering from Hodgkin’s disease as children.

“With the help of our friends, families, and a tremendous outpouring of support from those in our local and extended communities, our donations to date have helped purchase video games, books, art supplies and more for use by the children and their families during treatment at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital,” said Hoffman.

Hoffman says 315K for the Cure has raised and donated more than $85,000 to aid pediatric cancer patients in the area.

Wristbands can be purchased for $10 at The Celtic Harp starting at noon on Saturday. Two drink tickets are included with the purchase and the first 200 registrants will also receive a koozie.
