CrossFit Event to Benefit Hope House Shelter

CrossFit Nickel City (CFNC), 247 Virginia St., Buffalo, is hosting an in-house individual CrossFit competition at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 16, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit Hope House Shelter for Women & Children.

The Matt Urban Hope Center is a community-focused agency based on the East Side of Buffalo. Its mission is to revitalize neighborhoods, serve families and change lives by offering a full array of services and support to the community. This is accomplished through job training, housing assistance, financial planning and more. Each week over 300 people are assisted through the Center and over 250 families are served through the Hope House emergency shelter. Last year the organization helped 110 street homeless individuals secure housing and provided 88 permanent supportive housing units to the chronically homeless.

BUFFALO, NY-July 2, 2016

What happens when a Buffalo music powerhouse and a doggedly determined non-profit come together in a musical partnership? Funk for a cause. On July 2, 2016, musical mega-talent Eric “Critt” Crittenden will partner with music-scene notables and local non-profit organization Save the Michaels of the World, Inc. in an effort to bring awareness to the opioid drug epidemic in America.

An event to honor the late, legendary Prince Rogers Nelson, The Purple Party is a celebration of a musical icon geared towards calling attention to the epidemic that took his life.

On April 21, 2016, prolific musician, songwriter and vocalist Prince was found dead at age 57 in his Paisley Park home. A legend had been snatched right out from his musical realm, and the world mourned.
