Santino Carnevale’s Crusade for a Cancer-Free World took the form a community tailgate party on Oct. 6 at Pat’s Pizza and Pub in West Jefferson.
The event, which featured a cornhole tournament, children’s activities, live music entertainment and more, raised $13,000 for cancer research.
The funds go to The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute in Columbus in memory of Santino’s father, Michael, who battled adenoid cystic carcinoma. Carnevale is a student at Jefferson Local Schools.
