Save the Tower

There’s a grassroots charge to save one of Buffalo’s most iconic symbols, not just for the Kleinhans Community but for the entire city. EB Green masterpiece, First Presbyterian Church, has stood on its current site since 1890, watching over Symphony Circle and the Kleinhans neighborhood, adding both architectural beauty and grace as a symbol of Buffalo’s divine achievements.

In recent years the 163′ church tower has suffered greatly, and many people feared that it might have to be dismantled. After shoring up the tower so that it would not deteriorate further, One Symphony Circle Inc has opted to host a fundraiser in order to bring the community together to raise funds for the preservation of the masterpiece.

On Friday November 15th, from 5:30 – 10:30pm, come join other preservationists for a celebration intended to help raise money for the church tower.

Food will be served inside, with an opportunity to explore the inspirational building. The evening will include desserts from Quaker Bonnet Eatery and Room for Dessert, and as much beer and wine as you can responsibly consume. Lloyd Taco Trucks will also be attending. 

Tickets are $40, with donation proceeds benefitting the restoration and preservation of the landmark tower on Symphony Circle. Cash, check, or credit accepted.
