City of Light 2014 will take place in Buffalo’s University Heights on Saturday, December 6th. We will be partnering with the University Heights Collaborative (UHC) for this years City of Light event! The University Heights Collaborative is a community-based group of residents and other interested people working together to maintain and enhance the quality of life for all in their neighborhood. This year’s City of Light will be unique, as we will build our momentum based on the already established Light The Heights event that illuminates businesses throughout the Heights.
Each holiday season, members of B-Team Buffalo (BTB) organize a grassroots event called City of Light. In essence, the goal of the initiative is to decorate a neighborhood in the city so that it shines for the holidays. Not only will the team be decorating the streets, volunteers will also be adding a sparkling touch to houses in the neighborhood. On top of that, B-Team Buffalo will be hosting a winter carnival at the clubhouse, providing the neighborhood children with gifts (from Santa!), games, prizes, crafts, and other activities throughout the day, and we gather the residents and volunteers together for a celebration and tree-lighting ceremony & candlelit caroling. But we can’t do it without you!
We will have shifts from 9-1 and 2-6 for decorating. Carnival shift is 1:30-5:30. However shifts can be customized to fit into your schedule, every hour of volunteering is appreciated!!
