"Fire & Ice," a "culinary and visual extravaganza," takes place Thursday, March 12, at an all-new location, The Foundry at 1738 Elmwood Ave., Buffalo. The annual event benefits the Greater Niagara Frontier Council of the Boys Scouts of America and provides an evening of music, entertainment, food and premier auctions.
"Fire & Ice" celebrates the scouting experience and the positive impact volunteers have in instilling lifelong values and character in the youth they work with. The event features themed food stations, drinks and auctions. To help everyone enjoy the evening safely, complimentary service from Designated Drivers of Buffalo will be available, courtesy of William Mattar.
Tickets are $190 each or $325 per couple and are available now through March 6 at www.wnyscouting.org/events. In addition, there are a number of sponsorships available for the event.
Scouting has worked to build a foundation of leadership, service and community for youth. Since the GNFC began, more than 1 million young people from Western New York have participated in their programs introducing scouting to tomorrow's leaders. More information about "Fire & Ice" and scouting in Western New York can be found by visiting www.wnyscouting.org/events.
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The mission of the BSA is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout oath and law.
