UTICA, N.Y. – On Wednesday, December 12, 2018, City of Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri presented a check for $19,200 to the Mohawk Valley Health System (MVHS) Cancer Center.
Donations were raised for the MVHS Breast Care Center at Mayor Palmieri’s annual Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon, which took place on Friday, October 26, 2018, at Daniele’s at Valley View in Utica. Nearly 300 people attended the luncheon and was the largest amount the luncheon has raised to date.
