The Sean Standing Strong Memorial Foundation was formed to help assist young people who have been affected by cancer. The foundation provides financial assistance towards educational pursuits or recreational activities where the young person's illness can create a barrier.
In total, the foundation has been able to support 15 young adults. It's able to do that through donations and fundraiser like the Black and White Party.
2017 is the 5th Anniversary of the Black and White Party. It will take place on Saturday, November 4 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Holiday Inn on 28 Hawley Street in Binghamton.
Tickets are $40 pre-sale and can be purchased online or $50 at the door. Tickets to the event include light far, dessert, a cash bar, raffles and entertainment.
