This past weekend, TEAM95 had the pleasure of participating in the 2023 Buffalo Bowl benefitting Special Olympics NY. With the outstanding generosity of our customers, we managed to raise over $1,500 in donations for this event! We want to give you a bit of insight on what the event entailed and how you made a difference:
A bit of history on our partnership:
This is our 3rd year as a sponsor of the Special Olympics and each year continually becomes more and more special. When we established this partnership we knew that we wanted to do more than just write a check each year. We want to be a partner that is highly involved in events as much as we can. Events like the Buffalo Bowl, that we participated in this past weekend, give our team members the chance to meet new athletes and connect with the organization that we raise donations for.
The Special Olympics Buffalo Bowl Event:
What is the Buffalo Bowl? A 6 vs. 6 Flag Football Tournament benefiting Special Olympics New York. Each year the Special Olympics hosts this event at Highmark Stadium where each team has an honorary Special Olympics member that we get the chance to include in plays to showcase their skills. Their smiles, passion, and unwavering spirit were a reminder to us all that barriers can be overcome and dreams can be achieved when given the right platform and support.
We want to extend a huge thank you to all of our amazing customers that have donated in stores over the past few weeks. Your generosity helped TEAM95 raise over $1,500 for this event! We would love to give our customers a chance to participate in these events with us. If you’re interested in becoming involved, let us know!
