PAY IT FORWARD
We’ve selected two organizations that will benefit with part of the proceeds of the event.
We will also have the Salvation Army Bell Ringers there collecting money for those in need – as well as wrapping stations – to get your newly purchased gifts all wrapped up for a donation of your choosing.
PARKING AND SHUTTLE
If you’ve ever been to Buffalo Riverworks, you might know they have a HUGE parking lot that holds hundreds of vehicles. Their parking lot is absolutely free to park in. once that lot is filled up, they do have over flow parking available in surrounding lots. There is a $5 parking fee for parking in those overflow lots. There’s nothing we can do about that – BUT – we do have a shuttle service that will be driving around the lots, picking folks up and taking them right to the doors! The shuttle seats 20-30 or so and has standing room for another 15. So be sure to look for the We Care shuttle and grab a ride, especially on the way out- with all those gifts!!! AND YES, you can bring strollers! 🙂
We have some amazing food vendors. You can get pizza, wings and fingers – as well as pierogi from Babcia Pierogi and roast beef sandwiches from Andersons. (They will also be giving away ice cream samples)
We will have an entire section of home made, delicious desserts. Everything from chocolate and candy to pies, kettle corn and cotton candy!
Tickets are $5 for one day, $8 for both days (2-day passes are available online ONLY). Children 5 & under are FREE. There will be two lines at the door. One for those already with tickets and one for those needing to purchase tickets. So be sure to get your tickets ahead of time and don’t worry about standing in line! AND – with every ticket purchased, you get a 20% off coupon good at participating vendors! BUY TICKETS HERE.
It all takes place on December 2 and 3 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Buffalo Riverworks, 359 Ganson Street, Buffalo.
