Get in the summer groove with live music presented by Ali Critelli. Challenge fellow partiers to backyard games (Cornhole, anyone?). Bid on exciting auction items to benefit The Food Bank of WNY, and be the first to see the official unveiling of our Best Of WNY issue. General admission is 7-10 p.m.
