Event Details

Drinks, Catered Dinner and Gift Basket Raffles Add Up to Fun Evening
Feb. 5, 2018 – The second annual Resurgence Fundraiser to benefit the Seneca Street
Community Development Corporation (CDC) includes two drinks at an outstanding Buffalo
brewery, a catered dinner and the chance to win many high quality gift baskets. The event all
adds up to a fun couple of hours held on the cusp of a winter weekend: Thursday, Feb. 22 from
6 to 8 p.m.
Resurgence Brewing Company, 1250 Niagara St., Buffalo, a craft brewery and taproom
that focuses on unique flavors and classic styles, is the site of the Resurgence Fundraiser.
Seneca Street CDC, 1218 Seneca St., Buffalo, provides after school and summer
programs for children and teens, and other community outreach, in the Seneca-Babcock
community of South Buffalo.
Tickets are $25 each and may be purchased at senecastreetcdc.org/store, via email at
khenry@senecastreetcdc.org or at the door. For more information about tickets and volunteer opportunities for the event, contact Katie Henry at
(716) 939-3501.
The after-school program runs Monday through Thursday during the school year for
children and teens and concludes each day with a hot meal. The six-week summer program
features educational and engaging programming that includes weekly field trips, a two-week
reading camp and other theme weeks. According to student data, 68 percent of the children
who attend the program come from homes with an annual income below $25,000 and 13
percent of students’ families earn $5,000 or less annually.

About Seneca Street CDC
Formally incorporated in 2009, Seneca Street CDC, first and foremost, seeks to improve
children’s lives by providing positive learning spaces and activities, along with healthy foods
that allow them to grow to their full potential. Since the after-school programs began, first
generations of children have attended college. The CDC operates out of the Seneca Street
United Methodist Church building; we collaborate with local community members, churches,
universities, and businesses to provide the greatest service possible to the neighborhood.
How we help:
■ After-School and Teen Programs for students K-12 featuring tutoring, mentoring, clubs and
activities, and a free, hot homemade meal daily.
■ Summer at Seneca Street Program for six weeks for children in grades K-8 filled with
enrichment activities. Teen Program participants serve as counselors for the children through
the Mayor’s Summer Youth Program.
■ Administering a Community Garden, offering free garden plots to families and helping
children learn hands-on about healthy foods during the Summer program and to try new fruits
and vegetables.
Programming is offered at no cost to participants and is made possible through the generosity
of those who support our organization. We also rely heavily on our hard-working staff and
fantastic volunteers, many of whom grew up in Seneca-Babcock.
