Buffalo is gearing up for yet another Oktoberfest. This time the event takes place at The Marcy Casino in Delaware Park. The event seconds as a benefit to aid hurricane Matthew victims through local American Red Cross. The Oktoberfest will feature a Bavarian feast, a variety of beers from Bells Brewery and Thin Man Brewery and samples of German wine and spirits. Live music will also be the call to order, as The Frankfurters take to the stage to deliver an authentic German vibe.
Zicke, zacke, zicke, zacke, hoi, hoi, hoi, PROST!
“We were looking for another event to invite the public to enjoy our beautiful Olmsted Park at the Marcy Casino – an Oktoberfest celebration seemed fitting for the fall,” stated Jason Davidson, operator of Magnolia Catering, the catering service that runs weddings and events out of the Marcy Casino. “We expect a large crowd for this event, so we felt we should take the opportunity to benefit a local charity, as we have been doing all summer.” This summer, weekly Thursday Hoppy Hour events at the Marcy Casino hosted by local firm Bill Miller Law have raised funds and promoted many of Buffalo’s non-profits including the March of Dimes, the Say Yes to Education program and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
“This event will raise funds to assist those caught in the wake of Hurricane Matthew in both he United States and Haiti,” added Chuck Marra, Executive Director of the Western New York Chapter of the American Red Cross. “We are deploying volunteers to several states in the US, providing food, shelter, clothing, comfort and clean-up kits. It’s a massive and expensive undertaking and this event is meant to assist in raising additional funds.”
