BUFFALO, NY ( WKBW ) Organizers of the 16th Annual Family Fun Day, Jean Toth and Kate Chudoba, visited Linda Pellegrino on Channel 7's "AM/Buffalo" to roll out the details for the May 29th event.

WHERE: Coca-Cola Field, Rear Pavilion Area & Stadium Concourse - Buffalo, NY

WHEN: Carnival begins at Noon, Bisons game at 1:05 pm.

WHAT: Sixteenth Annual Family Fun Day to benefit the WNY United Against Drug and Alcohol Abuse Foundation and honor the memory of former Foundation Board Vice-President and event founder, the late Elaine Mack.

Event organizers are preparing for a crowd to attend this annual affair. Last year’s event raised $15,000 to support the local substance abuse prevention programs of WNY United Against Drug & Alcohol Abuse. For $8.00, each attendee will receive admission to the carnival in the pavilion area, lunch, and a ticket to that afternoon’s Bisons game (1:05 pm start).

There will be arts and crafts activities, face painting, temporary tattoos, inflatable attractions, prize raffles, appearances by our mascot friends and of course the baseball game that starts at 1:05 pm.

Tickets available at all Wegmans “That’s THE Ticket!” locations or at the door the day of the event.
