Fuzzy Faces Raise Funds and Awareness During November

Thank you to everyone who supported the agency’s 2nd Annual No Shave November!   During the month, 114 participants from 18 states (even as far away as California!) pledged to ‘get hairy for charity’ to raise money for Child & Family Services’ life-changing programs.

Participants stopped shaving for the entire month and collected donations from family, friends and coworkers in support of their progress.  Together, they raised nearly $12,000 to benefit the children, adults and families served by the agency’s 30 programs.

To celebrate their success, our fuzzy friends joined us at the Shave It Off event, presented by Corto’s Salon, on November 30th.  Guests enjoyed straight-razor shaves, discounted haircuts, and our top fundraisers received prizes.  

We extend a special thanks to our Top Individual Fundraiser, Dave Owczarczyk, who raised $1,055 during the month, and to our Top Fundraising Group, The Noshemberists, who brought in $1,095 in donations.   We also extend a special thank you to all of our sponsors who helped make this year’s event a tremendous success:  Corto’s Salon, 103.3 The Edge, WUTV Buffalo (Fox 29), Lofts at 136,WNYO-TV (myTV Buffalo) and Zenger Group.
