The annual Buffalo News Kids Day is coming.
On Tuesday, a special edition of The Buffalo News will be on sale to benefit the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital, Cradle Beach and the children of Western New York.
In a City Hall ceremony Wednesday, Buffalo Mayor Byron W. Brown and Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz proclaimed Tuesday as “Buffalo News Kids Day” in Erie County, urging people to support the initiative.
“Kids Day is a wonderful way for our community to come together to support children and families,” Brown said in a written statement.
“For over 30 years, Kids Day has been an annual rite of springtime,” Poloncarz said in the statement.
Since 1983, the profits from the special edition have totaled more than $4.7 million.
