A New stART: The Color Purple

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and purple is the official color adopted by the cause.  For this reason, Electric Tower owners, Iskalo Development, have generously offered bathe the tower in purple lights, beginning at dusk on September 30th, until dawn on October 1st.    

This will also signal the coming of A New stART, an art show and auction to benefit the
Family Justice Center of Erie County (FJC) and victims of domestic violence. It will take place from 5:30 to 8:30PM on Thursday, October 22nd, at Asbury Hall at The Church, 341 Delaware Avenue.                        

The Family Justice Center relies heavily
on donations and proceeds from events like A New stART
to fund its many programs which help
victims of domestic violence and their children, and believes that the lighting of the Electric
Tower will draw attention to these victims and the art show and auction
that benefits them through the FJC. 

A New stART Tickets are $35 and include
admission to the show/auction, wine tastings, hors d’oeuvres and live music. See artwork being offered for auction here. Tickets may be purchased at or by calling 716.558.5281. Works
from over a dozen local artists will be up for auction.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
