Good Neighbors, yours requests have been answered – we’re bringing back our monthly Friendraiser!

Join us at The Filling Station in Larkin Square, on Monday, December 1st, from 5:30-7pm, for an informal mixer to connect Good Neighbors with common causes – feel free to bring business cards and any promotional material. While everyone will be introduced formally for the sake of networking, we spotlight one specific cause at each Friendraiser, with this month’s focus on the reformed Give for Greatness (G4G) program, now supported by Arts Services Initiative of WNY (ASI). With ASI’s providing of office and administrative support, G4G is again awarding grants to local arts and cultural organizations; we’ll introduce their new director and committee members, who will discuss future event plans, including one in an exciting new location near Larkinville.  Read moreRead more

Announcing: Food Truck Turkey in Larkin Square on Thanksgiving Eve

This post currently has no comments.

As Larkin Square’s Food Truck Tuesday has become one of Buffalo’s biggest dinner parties, the success of the six-month season that ended in October called for an encore – enter Food Truck Turkey, set for the perfect occasion of one of Buffalo’s biggest social nights, Thanksgiving Eve.

While the 30+ food trucks from Buffalo and Rochester will not necessarily be serving Thanksgiving dinner staples, the spirit of the season will be felt in Larkin Square – live music will be provided by Buffalo band Gravy, named after their claim to “cover everything” with a fresh and funky twist, and the Salvation Army will be on site with a goal of “stuffing the truck” with donations of food and winter clothing.

Here at BBBSEC, we work hard day-to-day, but we also like to hang out with our friends, enjoy good food and get to know new people. That’s why we regularly host our “Big Mixer” events.

Coming up on Thursday, November 6th, from 5:30-7:30pm, we’ll be doing just that at Més Que (1420 Hertel Ave, Buffalo), one of our favorite spots! The Big Mixer is an opportunity for community members to network and enjoy free appetizers and drink specials, while learning a little bit more about what BBBSEC does, and get the real scoop from current Bigs about what it’s like to mentor.  Read moreRead more

It’s time for that old cliché: when did it become October?! It seems like only yesterday we were gearing up for a long summer. Seeing our Little Brothers and Little Sisters at BBBSEC get settled into their first few weeks of school also makes me feel like my own school days were only yesterday.  Read moreRead more

The one thing all the Littles at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County’s (BBBSEC) Site-Based mentoring Program have in common is their love of food. Preferably anything that is sugary and sweet. During the last week of school, we decided to celebrate by making an all-time classic snack: Read moreRead more

The Dude Hates Cancer Combines Bowling and Brewing…on Shabbos

This post currently has no comments.

By Tim Maxwell, Founder, National Chair & Buffalo Co-Chair, The Dude Hates Cancer

The Dude, Jeff Bridges’ lead character in the Coen Brothers film The Big Lebowski, seems like a pretty laid back guy. However, he does have some pet peeves, including: nihilists, The Eagles, and (I presume) cancer. So, when I decided to start a bowling fundraiser in 2006 in honor of my parents, who’d both been diagnosed with forms of blood cancer, it seemed only natural to name it after The Dude, who, after all, loved bowling.

Hallwalls to Host Reception for Outer Harbor Park Project

This post currently has no comments.

By Laura Kirkpatrick

This summer, so far, has been pivotal for Buffalo’s Outer Harbor. Perkins+Will have done a stellar job in a short amount of time meshing the hopes of Buffalonians with the needs of the ECHDC. But the focus on the Outer Harbor has been long-running, and for students of Professor Sean Burkholder at UB’s School of Architecture and Planning, it culminated last spring. Burkholder challenged his students to create park-first land use visions for Buffalo’s Outer Harbor. The assignment asked the students to Read moreRead more
