BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Buffalo Blues for Veterans has held more than 30 concerts over its four year history raising $70,000.

Due to COVID-19, that changed to virtual concerts held on Facebook.

"We take the money that comes in and we buy TOPS cards," said Buffalo Blues Director Bob James said. "And we give them to veteran organizations who know exactly what the veterans need."

The online concerts are held on Sundays on Facebook.
