Less than a week!

Yes, less than a week until Thursday September 22, at 8PM when we put on our party pants and head over to Billy Club on Allen for “Give Cancer The Bird!

FF Billy Club 750x90 ad

Wild Turkey is bringing over some of their best Bourbon and Rye, and that means specialty cocktails prices are down to $8, and $1 from each sold will go to Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Bring your friends, make new ones, and have a blast with Rise and the team behind Billy Club. This is their final week as sponsors of Feature Friday, giving away $25 to the top photo for three weeks in a row.

Cheers, Colin!

Buy Halloween Tickets Locally!

October 29th’s two-floor party is $45 for four hours of open bar, a buffet, a rock show downstairs and a dance party upstairs. Now, in addition to being able to buy online, you can stop at Record Theatre near Canisius College, Record Theatre near UB South or After Dark Entertainment on Elmwood for tickets with a lower fee than online. How about THAT! Support so many local businesses, bands, and DJ’s at once.

No Boundaries needs a boost!

Have you read about our upcoming newspaper, No Boundaries? Probably. We’ll be covering the underreported areas of the city, highlighting positive changes and ideas. We’ve received many sponsor dollars from local small businesses who want to get on board, and we’re oh so close to our fundraising goal. For $25, you can see your name in the masthead. Contact us for more information: hey@risecollaborative.com
