As part of an initiative to give back to the community we serve we have organized this annual event to raise funds for local charities. This year all proceeds will benefit The Haven House of Buffalo. This is a wonderful local organization that helps victims of domestic violence with leaving their situation, creating a new life, and the healing process. They provide plans, counseling, therapy, and temporary housing for victims and their families. This group helps so many men, women, and children in Buffalo every year. They really are a great example of an organization that helps to better this city and strengthen the community. We pride ourselves on being the City of Good Neighbors, and they truly embody that motto.
