The Buffalo Bisons are partnering with Anthony Baldi & Associates to encourage fans “2 Pack a Backpack” to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Buffalo during the team’s game against the Durham Bulls at 7:35 p.m. Friday, Aug. 12, at Coca-Cola Field.
All fans that donate a backpack or other school supplies prior to the Bisons game on Aug. 12 will receive a buy-one, get-one ticket voucher that can be used at any remaining 2011 Bisons game.
In addition to backpacks, fans can also donate notebooks, pens, pencils, folders, calculators, erasers, glue, scissors and numerous other school supplies. There will be several collection areas throughout the stadium.
For more information, visit Bisons.com or call 846-2211.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo serves over 8,000 youths in Western New York every year. The “2 Pack a Backpack” initiative provides local children with school supplies that they could not normally afford. The supplies will make a great difference for thousands of children just in time for the new school year.
