FC Buffalo held a dinner Thursday to celebrate its 2016 award winners and raise money for Pitch In Buffalo with an event co-chaired by the West Side Youth Development Coalition.

Along with raffles from the Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres, Buffalo Bisons, Mes Que and WSYDC, the club raised money with drink specials, and a taco bar at Hot Mama’s Canteen on Military Road.
