Location: John F. Beecher Clubhouse, 180 Tenth Street, Buffalo, NY 14201
Description: 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. This year, B-Team Buffalo has chosen Buffalo’s West Side in the neighborhood surrounding the John F. Beecher Boys and Girls Clubhouse as the recipient for the decorating project. 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!
