Mikey’s Way Foundation Prepares for Annual Benefit in Buffalo, New York

The Mikey’s Way Foundation is set to host its 10th annual Buffalo fundraising event Thursday, August 8 at Buffalo Riverworks. The Mikey’s Way Soirée will feature a casual evening on the riverfront with silent auction items, several exciting live auction packages and live music.

The Foundation distributes internet-ready electronics to pediatric cancer patients and children battling life-threatening illnesses so they can connect with their friends, family and school during the long periods of separation during treatment. The “Mikey’s Way Connection Cart” circles the floors of children’s hospitals across the country, giving away laptops, tablets, hand-held gaming systems and other electronic devices at absolutely no cost to the families. Each child is allowed to choose the item that they feel will work best for them, so that they can create their own diversion and take their focus off of the hardship of treatment.

The event, celebrating its tenth year in Western New York, draws over 300 supporters from the community and raises funds to serve children undergoing treatment at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Oishei Children’s Hospital of Buffalo. To date, the Foundation has served over 7,700 pediatric cancer patients across 20 states at over 63 hospitals.

The Mikey’s Way Soirée would not be possible without the support of its Board of Directors, the local community and all of the Foundation’s generous donors, including Lake Shore Savings Bank, a long-standing headline sponsor of the benefit and strong supporter of the Foundation’s mission. Mikey’s Way hosts a variety of events throughout the year in Western New York and is proud to serve the local children battling life-threatening illnesses.
