Endicott, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Orlando's at En-Joie Golf Club turned into a fair Saturday evening for ZooneyFest.

Proceeds from the ninth annual ZooneyFest will benefit Sam Brown and Jean Stevens, both dedicated employees at the Handicapped Children's Association.

"This year is great," organizer Jared Bowling said. "We're probably 100 people more through the door last year. So hopefully we are off to a great event."

Since Bowling started ZooneyFest nine years ago to honor his friend, the event has raised $175,000 and helped more than 20 people.
