Events in the City: City of Light Fundraiser and Toy Drive

b team

The B Team Buffalo Inc. is hosting their 6th annual City of Light fundraiser and toy drive at Fat Bob’s Smokehouse this Thursday November 7th. (Facebook event here)

Here’s a little background info about the City of Light event:

Each holiday season, members of B-Team Buffalo (BTB) organize a grassroots event called City of Light. In essence, the goal of the initiative is to decorate a neighborhood in the city so that it shines for the holidays. This year, B-Team Buffalo has chosen Buffalo’s West Side in the neighborhood surrounding the John F. Beecher Boys and Girls Clubhouse as the recipient for the decorating project. Not only will the team be decorating the streets, volunteers will also be adding a sparkling touch to  houses in the neighborhood. On top of that, B-Team Buffalo will be hosting a winter carnival at the clubhouse, providing the neighborhood children with gifts (from Santa!), games, prizes, crafts, and other activities throughout the day, and we gather the residents and volunteers together for a celebration and tree-lighting ceremony & candlelit caroling. But we can’t do it without you!

It’s $10 with a toy and $15 without. There will be food and drink specials! Come out and support The B Team and our community!

  1. This was such a well run event, again by Liz Callahan!! I was impressed with the turn out and so happy that so many people in Buffalo are able to support this great organization. Fat Bobs was the perfect venue for this happy hour fundraiser and the food was fantastic! There was a large pile of toys at the door too!! Looking forward to City of Light this year!!
