B Team Buffalo is proud to host a fourth consecutive year of their signature event, City of Light.  The event aims to bring light to the holiday season for Buffalo neighborhoods in need. This year the event will take place in the neighborhood surrounding the Riverside United Methodist Church at Tonawanda and Ontario Streets. B Team Buffalo and its volunteers will spend the day decorating

area homes for the holidays, free of charge to neighborhood residents. After the event residents will also get to keep all decorations.


After a successful spring clean up event at the church, B Team was eager to return to the neighborhood. "We had a great time helping out, and wanted to do more," said B Team vice chair Elizabeth Callahan.


In addition to decorating the neighborhood, B Team will host a winter carnival in the church for volunteers and neighborhood residents throughout the day. The event will feature arts and crafts, pictures with Santa, and other holiday-themed activities, ending in a community dinner for all involved. After dinner, event participants are invited to join in a tree lighting ceremony outside at dusk.


The event will begin at 9am and decorating will commence at 10. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided for all volunteers. If you are interested in being a part of this high impact project or learning more, please visit
