Each holiday season, members of B Team Buffalo organize a grassroots event called City of Light. The goal of the initiative is to decorate a neighborhood in the city so that it shines for the holidays. Volunteers spend time decorating the streets and adding a sparkling touch to houses in the neighborhood. B Team Buffalo also hosts a free winter carnival for the families in the community, providing the neighborhood children with gifts from Santa, games, prizes, crafts, and a community meal. We also gather the residents and volunteers together for a celebration and tree-lighting ceremony.
