“The Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo is extremely honored to partner with Park Edge to provide programs to kids in need,” said B&GC of Buffalo CEO Shari McDonough. “We survive on the generosity of people like Anna and Maggie and appreciate them investing in the future of our kids!”

Park Edge Sweet Shoppe started on Seneca Street with a husband and wife creating the unique sponge candy sticks. Over the years, the shop relocated to its Abbott Road location, and went through another set of owners before sisters and South Buffalo natives, Anna Hartog and Maggie Mulvaney, took over in 2011.
