The 12th annual Cancer Research Classes brought thousands of people to downtown Wheeling for some of the best high school hoops around, and the event brought more than just entertainment.
The entire downtown area flourished due to the CRC moving from Wheeling Jesuit University to WesBanco Arena.
River City Restaurant even ran several specials to attract customers, ranging from draft beers to steak.
They even had a ton of reservations.
Jason Miller who co-owns River City said he’s a big basketball fan himself, and hopes to see the CRC continue at Wesbanco Arena.
“It really benefited the downtown area,” said Miller. “It brought thousands of different guests to the area and we really benefited from this weekend.”
River City is also having their Valentine’s Day special with is a three day event. They are taking reservations now.
