The Buffalo Naval and Military Park is organizing a huge fundraising event and it looks like it's going to be a ton of fun.

Those who have been to the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park know how incredible it is.  Their mission is to Honor, Educate, Inspire, and Preserve.  They want to honor veterans, active military, and military families.  Educate people about the history and values of service and sacrifice in defense of freedom.  Inspire a sense of patriotism and appreciation in protecting the right to liberty and justice for all.  And to preserve the military artifacts entrusted to their care.

If this sounds like something that you'd be interested in supporting, then put Thursday, August 22nd on your calendar and plan to join them for a huge benefit.

They call it Ship N Shore and they have a ton of stuff planned.  Not only can you look forward to music from Buffalo Music Hall of Fame inductee Van Taylor, but they'll have some incredible food available too.  You can look forward to Chefs from the American Culinary Federation who will serve up some of Buffalo's best along with Liberty Hound, Rosina Pasta, Mission BBQ, and the newest addition to their annual fundraiser, Fresh Catch.

Don't forget about the drinks either.  They'll have First Line, Resurgence, and Big Ditch breweries joining them along with 13 Monkeys Whiskey, a selection of Finger Lakes region wines, and Labatt's beer and seltzers.

The food, drinks, and music are all included in the price of your ticket! Of course, they'll also feature a live auction, silent auction, basket raffles, pinup girls, and the Buffalo Firefighters Pipe and Drums too. Sound like fun?  More info and tickets are available now by clicking here.
