Thank you to everyone who supported our We Stand For Peace fundraiser at Soho Buffalo. Folks enjoyed an early dose of summer weather while taking in breathtaking rooftop sights to help our newest refugee neighbors settle into the community. We raffled over 50 baskets with a dollar value of $10,000. The event also featured a live DJ, a silent auction, a vendor showcase, food, and beverages.
Special thanks to Karina Krantz, who worked tirelessly over the last several months to organize the event. She spoke about her refugee journey that inspired her passion to help others alongside Executive Director Jennifer Rizzo-Choi on WIVB TV. You can click here to watch!
If you weren’t able to join us this time around, it’s never too late to pitch in and help our mission of making Western New York a better place for, and because of, immigrants and refugees. You can click here for a list of urgently needed new and used item donations or make a cash donation.
