One Western Mass business is giving back to organizations that help patients fight cancer.
Nini's Ristorante located on Cottage Street in Easthampton held its annual fundraiser for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
A percentage of proceeds from Wednesday night's meal at the restaurant will be donated to Dana Farber.
The annual event was held in memory of Giovanni Daniele, who opened Nini's Ristorante in 1976. He passed away in December of 2011 from amyloidosis, a form of multiple myeloma.
"My father passed away two years ago from cancer so we're just trying to help get rid of cancer basically," said Daniele's son, Johnny.
This was the second year the restaurant hosted the fundraiser.
