Sing loudly against breast cancer at the Hub Eatery


UTICA — It’s time to use your voice in the fight against breast cancer.

An open-mic karaoke night will be held from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, October 7 at the Hub Eatery, 222 Bleecker St.

The family of host and local entertainer Amos Donnell Williams Jr. (stage name Amos Donnell) have been personally affected by breast cancer – an aunt died of the disease and another was diagnosed.

Through music and creativity, he and Hub Eatery owner Frank Cotrupe want to help give back while “making it fun,” Donnell said.

“I don’t personally feel like everyone knows the seriousness of [the disease]and the importance of knowing more about it, Donnell shared. “We want everyone it may affect to know that we see it and are here to support and recognize breast cancer.”

“We want to give back. We want to help people. We want to give survivors a place to come and share their good vibes, their feelings and their hearts,” Cotrupe said.

Overall, the two hope to spark awareness and positive energy.

“When you think of cancer, everyone is usually upset or sad,” Donnell said. “Right now is not the time to be sad. It’s time to celebrate. Let’s put smiles on everyone’s faces and do what we can to help. »

Admission is $10 for guests wearing pink, $20 for everyone else. Pink Whitney drink specials will be available.

All proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society.
