Jingle Bowl 2017

Calling all bowlers. On Wednesday, December 6, at 6:30pm, the community is invited to participate in a bowling event that intends on raising upwards of 700 lbs of non-perishable food for the Food Bank of WNY. Participants are asked to wear sweaters that are at least as ugly as their accompanying bowling shoes.

There’s no better excuse to hit the lanes than for a charitable cause. And during the holidays, the Food Bank of WNY strives to ensure that everyone who is hungry is fed.

Within the Food Bank’s service area (Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie and Niagara counties):

  • 178,810 people – 13.3% of the overall population – are food insecure.
  • 58,430 children – 20.7% of the child population – are food insecure.

Jingle Bowl 2017 is your chance to help. Or visit for additional information about how you can help to feed those who are in need.

The event is hosted by the American Advertising Federation. All of the details can be found here – spots are limited.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
