Mayor Calls On Community To Help Raise Funds

MAYOR BROWN CALLS ON THE COMMUNITY TO HELP RAISE FUNDS FOR POP WARNER PEE WEE DIVISION AND POP WARNER JUNIOR PEE WEE DIVISION’S TRIP TO CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES


Mayor Brown donates $500 and leverages additional donations to meet the team’s fundraising goal to cover travel and lodging costs for the games this weekend

Buffalo, New York –Mayor Byron Brown and the WNY Bills of the Pop Warner Football League Pee Wee Division and Pop Warner Football League Junior Pee Wee Division are on a mission to bring home championship titles and they need the community’s help to do it.  After a successful season in Western New York, both teams are now eligible to play in this weekend’s Mid-American Regional Championship Games in Michigan City, Indiana.

"These young people work hard during the season, both in their athletic work and their academic work, and we want to help them in any way possible," said Mayor Brown at a City Hall news conference, standing with athletes and their coaches.  “I call on the generosity of our community to support these students – a warm example of our city coming together again.”
Mayor Brown kicked off the community-wide fundraising effort today by making a $500 donation, leveraging an additional $500 donation from Buffalo Attorney Adam Perry of Hodgson Russ, a $500 donation from Buffalo Attorney Asa Mosey and a $500 donation from Assistant District Attorney Michael Flaherty for a total donation of $2,000.  This donation completed the teams’ fundraising goal to get the players and coaches to the regional championship games this weekend.  If successful in Indiana, the teams will need to raise an additional $26,000 to cover travel and lodging costs associated with the Pop Warner Super Bowl in Orlando, Florida. 


Last year, Mayor Brown kicked off a similar community-wide fundraising effort by making a $500 donation which leveraged the needed funds to send the Pop Warner Football League Junior Pee Wee Division to the Pop Warner Super Bowl in Orlando.  Donations can be mailed/dropped off at the BFNC Moot Center, located at 292 High Street - Buffalo, NY 14204 or online at www.BFNC.org.
