200 people are expected to attend "St. Baldrick's Day at the Pub" at 2 p.m. Saturday at the bar on Central Avenue. The event will raise funds for the St. Baldrick's Foundation, a nonprofit organization that raises funds for research to find cures for childhood cancers.

"Cortland is very supportive and generous when it comes to helping kids with pediatric cancer," Tom Terwilliger, owner of the Red Jug Pub, said.

It's the fourth year the tavern has put on the event, Terwilliger said. The event also takes place at the Red Jug Pub in Oneonta.

Terwilliger expects the event to raise $10,000 for the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
