Participating in a special event is a fun way to support children and families in our care throughout the year! By working together to raise funds, and increase awareness of the needs of those we serve, we can make an even bigger impact for children and families across Western New York.
Proceeds from these events help to support moments that mean the most to those in our care. Our signature annual fundraisers provide for nearly 25% of the annual contribution Gateway Longview Foundation pledges to Agency’s programs each year. Smaller events support specific program requests or capital needs and are allocated by the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
A fun way to shake of the winter blues with WNY friends – 30 to be exact! A portion of every registration supports technology needs for the littlest learners at our Therapeutic Preschool.
