YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The third annual Carmstrong Benefit Bar Crawl was held in downtown Youngstown Saturday night.
The benefit is in honor of Carmine Cassese, who passed away in 2013 from pancreatic cancer.
Event organizers say Cassese was about helping others and wanted to help spread that message.
Half of the proceeds from the event will benefit pancreatic cancer research. The other half will help fund a YSU scholarship fund.
“The biggest thing is giving back to the city. Carmen Cassese was a man who lived in this town. His biggest thing was just to give back, be a nice person, and that is what we do here,” said Shawn McGehee, organizer.
