UTICA, NY - 315K for the Cure held a “Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl” on Varick Street Saturday.

The event helped raise money to support local families that are battling pediatric cancer.

Patrons of The Celtic Harp, O’Donnell’s Irish Pub & Grill, 5 Points Public House, Lukin’s, and Luna’s were able to enjoy drink specials, DJs, and live music.

Colin LaReaux, who along with fellow pediatric cancer survivor Brooke Hoffman founded 315K for the Cure, said every dollar they raise goes directly to the kids.

“Whether it’s getting them video games, computers, books – whatever. Anything to support the family.”

Since it was founded 5 years ago, 315K for the Cure has raised over $85,000 to aid pediatric cancer patients.
