Give 716

Posted on

GIVE 716 IS LIVE NOW! We are thrilled to be a part of the Give 716 Campaign for the 4th year in a row! This year’s event takes place beginning at 7:16pm on Monday, July 15th until 7:16pm on July 16th. Give 716 is a collaborative effort between the Buffalo Bills Foundation and the Buffalo Sabres Foundation. The goal of Give 716 is simple, to unite Bills and Sabres fans with the Western New York Community in an epic giving event. In three years $3,369,853 has been raised for Western New York charities! Below in the images are the incentives.

Since our building was constructed nearly 10 years ago, all our support equipment was purchased in used condition, including scoreboards for both of our arenas and our Zamboni Ice resurfacers. Since inception we have replaced both Zambonis (one new used and the other a brand-new unit in August of 2023). The majority of the funds were from donations and fundraising events.

We are now in dire need of a new scoreboard as our current one has outdated technology. Without a working scoreboard, we are unable to host many of the sporting games that support our mission. We have secured $10,000 through a Niagara County Youth Bureau grant but need an additional $8,000 to fully fund the project by September 30, 2024, to qualify for county reimbursement. We are confident that with your generous support, we can reach our fundraising goal and continue to provide a space where the community can thrive.

Every donation, no matter how small, brings us a step closer to achieving our mission. Your contribution will directly impact the youth and sports enthusiasts in our community by providing state-of-the-art facilities and endless opportunities for growth and development. Thank you for your continued support!
