St. Agnes Hosting Fundraiser for Katie McBride Foundation

Concert, dinner will take place Nov. 23 for the late Nassau resident.

The Monsignor Kelly Parish Center at St. Agnes Cathedral will be hosting a concert fundraiser on Nov. 23 to help establish a college and high school scholarship fund in honor of Katie McBride.

McBride, a former New Hyde Park resident, died at the age of 11 after a long, tough battle with cancer.

According to the story on her foundation's website:

On her 11th birthday, she was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma, a rare and aggressive childhood cancer. By the time it was found the cancer had already spread throughout her body.

McBride received a number of treatments, but relapsed multiple times, eventually passing away on March 1, 2008.

The event is 18-and-over and 21-plus for bar service. Tickets are $35 each and include beer, wine and food.

Those interested in attending can purchase tickets on the Katie McBride Foundation website.
