Buffalo- Hundreds of people gathered at Canalside in Buffalo for a Concert for a Cure.

The event, put on by organizers who have lost loved-ones to cancer, raised money to benefit Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

Local bands and restaurants were at the venue providing Western New York with fun all for a good cause.

This was the first event in what organizers hope will become an annual event.

Congressman Brian Higgins was there to share with the crowd the importance of raising funds for cancer research and treatment and to talk about what an asset Roswell Park Cancer Institute is in the community.
