Orlando's at En-Joie was packed on Saturday for the 9th Annual Zooneyfest. This year's Zooneyfest helps benefit Sam Brown of Binghamton and Jean Stevens of Endicott, who both have cancer.
Eight live bands played at the event. People enjoyed food, drinks games and raffles. Organizers hope to raise more than $15,000 for the two beneficiaries. They say Zooneyfest is a great way to touch lives.
"There's hardship and sadness in that people are having trouble and there's acelebration by coming together and helping them out. It's a great story," Jared Bowling, Co-Chair of Zooney Fest said.
The first Zooneyfest was held in 2005 to raise money for Joe Zunic who had ALS. Zunic died in 2008 but friends continued to honor his wish and hold Zooneyfest annually. This year it's partnered with the Foundation for Community Betterment.
