Can you believe it's almost November? Neither can we. This time of year, we are normally gearing up for our annual Heroes Gala, where we gather to celebrate and honor the WNY community.

While there's no gala this year, we're still gathering in our own way- around the kitchen table with our Family Dinner Kits. Thank you to everyone who's purchased one so far! They're just one of the dozens of items available at our upcoming Virtual Auction, along with autographed jerseys from the Buffalo Bills' Josh Allen and Buffalo Sabres' Jack Eichel, spa packages, house-painting services, restaurant gift cards, family fun packs, a year of wine and more! Stay tuned for the auction link- it all goes live one week from today, Monday November 2.

Stay safe, stay well, and as always, know we are here for you.

Tara N. Burgess, Executive Director
and the entire EPIC team
