Five Days until the "Auction for Farm Animals" at Merge Restaurant

The above video, if not visable can also be viewed by clicking here. I chose to post it because the celebrities here share my sentiments. They discuss what it is to visit Farm Sanctuary, and Gene Baur talks about rescue, and what the food industry really is, as do many of the celebrities. John Joseph is featured, and will actually be in town with Cro-Mags next month. If you are attaching a stigma to vegans, something like "hippy, tree hugger, skinny, or wimp" I assure you that John Joseph breaks those stereotypes, or that stigma. Buffalo native Wolfe Blitzer recently interviewed Bill Clinton about his vegan diet, to watch click the highlighted name.

Fifth Annual Catwalk For Charity

Just as the Sabres prepare to begin another season, Ryan Miller is preparing to once again host his Catwalk for Charity event which benefits the Steadfast Foundation. That program supports young people who are battling cancer and their families.

Miller announced that the theme for this year's event will be "A Reason To Rock" which will recall the 1980's glam rock period of artists like David Bowie, Iggy Pop, and the Ramones.

People are encouraged to dress up with lots of big hair, leather, and spandex. Miller says some Sabres players like Steve Montador and Pat Kaleta are willing to jump right in to costume for this event.

The Sabres star goalie says live bands will help re-create the era and those who attend will enjoy the music, food, and some surprises.

This is the fifth year for the Charity for Catwalk event which has so far raised more than $650,000 for the Steadfast Foundation.
