Hi. I didn't know where I could submit a news release but we were hoping Channel 7 could get involved with our event for cancer. Below is some of the press release that I copy and pasted and we are meeting tomorrow at Labatt headquarters at 4pm if you'd like to come do a story and cover it.
For Immediate Release – August 13th, 2009

Buffalo, N.Y. – 15 bars located in the heart of Buffalo’s Entertainment District are coming together for 'Little Black Dress Fridays’; a street-wide ladies night presented by Labatt Blue and Finlandia Vodka. 100 percent of the weekly proceeds will go to the Sisterhood Wellness Center to help breast cancer survivors’ right here in Western New York.
For the next eight Friday nights’ (August 14th through October 2nd) patrons of these 15 establishments will have the ability to participate with just a $5 donation. The donation includes V.I.P. Access at all the bars, a souvenir wine glass, drink specials for the entire night and a pink bracelet to identify their charitable support and awareness of breast cancer.
“We’re excited to come together and support such a great cause especially with breast cancer awareness month coming up” Sean Coughlin of Bayou on Chippewa.
While little black dresses are not mandatory, those ladies following theme will be entered to win weekly prizes donated from all the participating bars and additional sponsors like Zoladz Limousine.
“Little black dress or not, we think everybody is going to really enjoy themselves downtown on Friday nights considering the variety of the 15 places to choose from and knowing you’re helping others in Western New York” Jay Manno of SoHo on Chippewa
The Sisterhood Wellness Center has been supporting breast cancer survivors in WNY for 10 years with their semi-annual retreats where breast survivors are able to escape to a serene environment and heal with other survivors spiritually, emotionally, and physically.
