Clean water is a necessity, and Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper, a not-for-profit organization, is dedicated to the conservation and sanitation of the Niagara River’s water. The efforts of Riverkeeper require money, time and effort. What better way to raise money for a great cause than to hold a concert series?
Beginning February 9th, Riverkeeper will collaborate with Labatt Blue Light and The Good Neighborhood to offer the “Labatt Blue Light Border Cross Concert Series.” It is presented by The Good Neighborhood, which, according to its Facebook page, is a company “that pairs performers with common causes to create Gatherings for the Common Good.”
All of the proceeds from the event, which plays on the unique connection between Buffalo and Canada, will go directly to Riverkeeper.
The five-night event features six distinctive Canadian bands, in four Buffalo locations: Pearl Street Grill & Brewery, Croc Bar, Sportsmen’s Tavern and Mohawk Place. In addition to great music in fun surroundings, Labatt Blue Light has purchased Sabres tickets to be raffled off each night.
Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper is looking for volunteers to sell raffle tickets during each concert, as well as to advertise and promote the event after the Sabres game on February 9th. If you’d like to help out, you can contact Adrienna Kina, Citizen Action Volunteer Coordinator, at email@example.com or 716.852.7483.
