Charity honoring late Easton teen to host fundraiser

FAIRFIELD -

A charity is raising money to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer.

Mikey's Way Foundation was created by an Easton teen with cancer, using his Make-A-Wish to help provide electronics for kids undergoing treatment.

On Friday, Mikey's Way will host a fundraiser at Fairfield's Penfield Pavilion, serving up dishes from local restaurants and having an auction on prizes.

Mikey passed away in 2008, but his parents keep his memory alive by running the charity in his honor.

The organization distributes electronics to kids at 55 hospitals across the country.
