Sabres Host 6th Annual Aces and Blades Event

Choosing between heading to the casino or getting your dose of sports action won’t be a problem this weekend.

On Friday, February 11, the Buffalo Sabres will be hosting their 6th Annual Aces and Blades casino night.  The event is being presented by Verizon and will take place on  from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. at HSBC Arena.
Attendees can participate in casino games where current and former Buffalo Sabres players will be dealing the cards.  Not only will they have the chance to meet the players, but they could potentially win some great prizes to take home.  Even if you can’t win at the blackjack table, there will also be live and silent auctions of rare sports memorabilia taking place that evening.  Food and drinks will also be provided to all.
All attendees must be age 21 or older. Tickets are $125 each or $110 for each person in a group of five or more.  The proceeds will be put towards the Buffalo Sabres Foundation, which works to assist organizations in the Western New York and Southern Ontario region.  They specifically focus on support for youth hockey initiatives, children’s health, and serving the underprivileged and handicapped.

I moved to Buffalo to attend Canisius College in 2007 and began writing for Buffalo Rising as a journalism intern in 2010. Working with Newell and meeting numerous entrepreneurs, activists and everyday folks who were working to make their city better made a huge impact on my decision to stay here. After witnessing all the positive development and grassroots initiatives happening in neighborhoods throughout the city, I was inspired to pursue a term of service in AmeriCorps and a career in Buffalo's non-profit sector. I currently work in the housing department at the Lt. Col. Matt Urban Human Services Center of WNY and am excited to be a part of their ongoing efforts to revitalize the Broadway Fillmore neighborhood. I also volunteer as the project coordinator for Artfarms Buffalo. I continue to write for Buffalo Rising because I love having the opportunity to stay connected to those working toward positive changes for the Queen City.
