Bisons to Host Armed Forces Tribute Day Benefiting Buffalo Naval Park

This post currently has no comments.

The Buffalo & Erie County Naval & Military Park’s Armed Forces Tribute Day committee and the Buffalo Bisons have teamed together not only to honor our military, but to raise funds for critical repairs to the park’s largest decommissioned warship, the USS Little Rock.

On Armed Forces Day, Saturday, May 17th, when The Herd take on the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (4:05pm first pitch, pre-game festivities beginning at 3:30pm), the Bisons will donate half the proceeds from the sale of special $10 tickets to the BECNMP, while welcoming numerous veterans organizations for in-game raffles and auctions. An elaborate pre-game celebration will include Read moreRead more

It’s no surprise to find a team in the sport that refers to its jerseys as “sweaters” hosting a winter clothing drive for its community.

The Buffalo Sabres will again this December collect winter clothes to donate to the Buffalo City Mission, staging donation stations at four home games at First Niagara Center (1 Seymour H. Knox III Plaza, Canalside) tonight (7pm, vs. Ottawa), Saturday, December 14th (2pm, Calgary), Tuesday, December 17th (7pm, Winnipeg) and Thursday, December 19th (7pm, Boston). Fans are encouraged to bring new or gently-used clothing such as hats, gloves, coats, boots, scarves and sweaters, all of which will  be given to the City Mission, which will have representatives on-hand at the games accepting the clothes as well as cash donations.

You and Who’sday – Buffalo FAMbase to Offer 26 Limited Bills Fan Shirts Benefiting Causes

By Del Reid, 26 Shirts

I had an idea.

I wanted to sell 26 t-shirts.

Not one t-shirt to 26 individual customers – 26 unique designs over the course of a year.

My name is Del Reid and I’m a huge Buffalo Bills fan. Jeez, that sounds like something from an AA meeting, doesn’t it? Well, maybe that’s an appropriate correlation for Buffalo sports fans these days. I’m also a big believer in paying it forward by using whatever talents, material items, or clout you’ve been blessed with to help others. Read moreRead more

This Sunday, October 20th, the Buffalo Sabres will lead a short but monumental walk from First Niagara Center to the nearby Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park in effort to raise funds for a proposed new monument honoring the 64 Western New Yorkers lost to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The “Gold & Blue Star Military Family Tribute Walk” will serve WNY I AM, which hopes to raise enough funds to build the memorial sometime next year. The walk is open to the public – $30 tickets are now available for purchase (the walk is free for kids 12 & under), and those who raise at least $100 will receive Read moreRead more

Holy moly, what a wild night we had in Larkin Square for our 2nd annual South Buffalo Night! A few new Live at Larkin records were set, including an attendance of over 4,000 and with it far more beer than we’d ever poured there in one night – we had to have more delivered!

For all we worked to make that night big and fun, we tip our cap to Peg Overdorf of the Valley Community Association for taking a one-week break from her free Wednesday concerts in nearby Buffalo River Fest Park aka Peg’s Park, encouraging her many volunteers to enjoy a week off with South Buffalo Night and encouraging others to attend as well.

Song of the Day – Boston Strong, “The Star-Spangled Banner” [Bruins-Sabres Game]

Happy 237th birthday, America. We could stand to be a lot more united than our name lets on, but sometimes we get it right – usually whenever we get pushed around. We’ve proven to be stronger than the wrath of Mother Nature from the homes of Oklahoma to the shores of NYC; we quickly interrupt our own in-fighting from social justice to sports to stand loud and proud in solidarity for such seemingly simple freedoms as congregating in the street without fear.

See below for Exhibit A – “The Star-Spangled Banner,” Buffalo Sabres vs. Boston Bruins, TD Bankworth Garden, Wednesday, April 17th, 2013 – just three days after the Boston Marathon Bombing.

Imagine how great we could be if more of our countless ongoing battles for justice were met with the same mettle. The more we unite, the more we’ll get it right.  Read moreRead more
