Emily’s Hopful Holiday was held Sunday at Ziggy’s Restaurant and Pub on Park Avenue in Amherst, raising funds for Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. The annual event helps the families of children with cancer. It also celebrates remission for Emily Zichi, who in 2007 was diagnosed at age seven with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. After more than two years of treatment, she was declared cancer-free. All money from her fundraiser goes toward utilities, rent, mortgages, car repairs, doctor appointments, and other needs for children fighting the same battle.
