Buffalo, New York – Mayor Byron W. Brown and Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz announced today that the Buffalo News annual “Special Kids Day Edition Sale” will take place on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 to benefit the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital, Cradle Beach and children of Western New York. The two leaders also proclaimed April 30, 2019 “Buffalo News Kids Day” in the City of Buffalo and Erie County, urging their fellow citizens to actively support the worthwhile endeavor.
“Kids Day is a wonderful way for our community to come together to support children and their families,” said Mayor Brown. “In the spirit of maintaining the great success of Kids Day, I’m calling on Buffalo residents to stop and support the hundreds of Kids Day volunteers and buy the $1 Kids Day Edition. Maybe even hand the volunteer a little extra to support the mission of medical care for our kids.”
Mayor Brown and County Executive Poloncarz were joined by Dr. Stephen Turkovich, Chief Medical Officer of the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital, Kathy Sautter, Public and Media Relations Manager of Tops Markets and Lisa Cislo, Promotions Coordinator at the Buffalo News.
Since 1983, the profits made from the Special Kids Day Edition Sale have totaled more than $4.8 million and have helped children all across WNY. This year, the Buffalo News “Kids Day Edition” will be sold at over 1,000 locations throughout the area. Many partners join The Buffalo News in this huge county-wide initiative, including hundreds of corner captains, thousands of volunteers and, of course, the more than 100,000 donors that help to make this special fundraising campaign such a success.
