Lewiston's Village Bake Shoppe is selling special blue cookies to raise funds for "Blue4Ben." A portion of the cookie sale proceeds will go to the Sauer family.
Though he recently passed at the young age of 5, Ben Sauer is still motivating Western New Yorkers with his courage, faith and joy. His bravery unified an entire region, and his attitude inspired others to love one another.
Blue4Ben helps offset the Sauer's medical expenses. As the initiative continues, future donations will be made to Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Make-A-Wish and Western New York charities that support children like Ben.
