B Team Buffalo is preparing, once gain, to light up another neighborhood in the city this coming winter, and they need your help. The event is part homage to City of Light and part exercise in helping to promote ‘the spirit of the city’ in neighborhoods that could use a little love.
In order to pull off the event successfully the group hosts a summer party where volunteers come together to promote the City of Light initiative, so that everyone has a chance to meet one another and learn more about the future plans. “Plans are already in the making for the 6th annual City of Light event taking place this year in the Buffalo West side neighborhood surrounding 10th Street and the John F. Beecher Boys & Girls Club Clubhouse,” said B-Team co-organizer Ryan Daley. “B Team will set out to transform this neighborhood – decorating large sections of streets for the holiday season, serving meals to residents, and providing the neighborhood children with gifts (from Santa!), games, prizes, crafts, and other activities throughout the day at our Winter Carnival. In the evening, we gather the residents and volunteers together for a celebration and tree-lighting ceremony and candlelit caroling. But we can’t do it without you! All of this is taking place on December 7th, 2013 with more details to follow…”
Before the big event in December, B Team Buffalo needs your help this summer. Please plan to join them and Buffalo Niagara 360 at Christmas in July on July 18th from 5:30-8:30pm at Templeton Landing (2 Templeton Pl, Buffalo, NY 14202) to mix and mingle on the rooftop with hundreds of Buffalo’s most dynamic young leaders, while raising awareness and funding for City of Light. Enjoy live entertainment, warm weather, food and beverages all to benefit City of Light.
Last December’s “City of Light” event in the Old First Ward – the purpose of the “Christmas in July” event is to raise awareness about City of Light and start engaging new partners and volunteers to help support City of Light.
