5th Annual Hope Chest Buffalo Niagara Dragon Boat Festival

Luminina, operating as Hope Chest, will be hosting the highly anticipated Dragon Boat Festival at RiverWorks on Saturday, June 18, 2016.

If you’ve never seen a dragon boat up close, RiverWorks if the perfect viewing spot for such a race. Not only is this an exciting event, it’s also for a very worthy cause – the organization helps breast cancer survivors to learn about proper nutrition, and offers emotional support to those who need it at critical times.


On top of all of this, Hope Chest teaches breast cancer survivors how to train for the big race, which has become an incredible bonding and support mechanism for participants. 

Raffles, refreshments and children’s activities will be available. This is a free event for spectators!

On the big race day, breast cancer teams from all over North America will be competing. RiverWorks will be a premier venue for the festival, by offering plenty of alternative activities ranging from Buffalo Pedal Tours to live entertainment.

  • Fierce competition
  • Creative costumes
  • Delicious food
  • Live entertainment from 4-7 pm by the Patti Parks Band

All proceeds benefit Hope Chest of Buffalo. | Also check out Facebook page
