Ithaca, NY – March 19, 2014 –
For the third consecutive year Kilpatrick’s Pub of Ithaca has partnered with St. Baldrick’s Foundation to raise funds to help conquer childhood cancer. Kilpatrick’s Pub has taken on all responsibilities regarding fundraising, recruiting volunteers, handling all of the proceeds, and maintaining the integrity of the event. It has also created a bond between locals who come back year after year and appreciate the hard work and dedication by the staff at Kilpatrick’s and the Hilton Garden Inn. Some people come from as far away as New Jersey and San Diego to continue the tradition with us of shaving their heads in honor of children fighting cancer.
In the first year (2012) we raised $9,190. In the second (2013)year we raised $9,430. And this (2014) year we’ve already raised over $15,260 with the final tally still being counted.
Kilpatrick’s Pub plans on continuing the tradition of hosting the St. Baldrick’s Foundation events and co branding that with our Irish heritage.
