Buffalo Campaign Reemerges To Raise Money For Roswell Park
The campaign first ran in 2000 with over 150 buffalo statues scattered across the city and even the suburbs. After the last campaign, the Herd about Buffalos group donated more than $1.6 million to Roswell Park. The group told Channel 7 WKBW they hope to make a significant donation again.
"It was a wonderful art project the city embraced," organizer Sally Russell told Channel 7. She also said that decorating the city and helping a cause like Roswell is a win-win for all involved.
Roswell is also auctioning off Buffalo statues to raise money.
"We have 12 painted wonderfully decorated buffalos you can bid on. All the proceeds from this project will go toward research at Roswell and certainly the patients," Russell said.
