Buffalo, NY - Russell Friedman & Associates is a proud supporter of the 30th Annual Springfest Gala. We were an Auction & Raffle sponsor held Thursday May 11, 2019 at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center Ballroom, benefitting ECMC’s new Level 1 Adult Trauma Center and Emergency Department.
This Springfest Gala is the largest not-for-profit gala in Western New York, which drew over 2,000 guests – the largest gathering in the event’s history – from the business, medical, and ECMC communities for an evening of entertainment, fine dining and celebration. Springfest 2019 raised the highest gross in its history – exceeding $1.2 million from Springfest festivities this year – to benefit life-saving medical services at ECMC.
