Festival of Trees

At the December 2 Festival of Trees, we immersed ourselves in the warmth of holidays past as we looked back at what the season of giving truly means. The celebration raised $1,900,000 in support of young cancer and blood disorder patients in our region who receive revolutionary care on the 12th floor at Oishei Children’s Hospital.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of WNY

The Great Lakes Anesthesiology administrative team volunteered at Ronald McDonald House Charities of WNY on November 1 and 7 preparing meals at The Buffalo House as part of their Meal Makers program. Each year, more than 500 individuals stay at The Buffalo House located at 780 West Ferry Street in downtown Buffalo just minutes away from Oishei Children’s Hospital, Sisters Hospital and Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

The Buffalo House is built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest. They believe that when a child is hospitalized the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.

On December 8, 2023, Ronald McDonald House Charities of WNY will celebrate its 40th Anniversary. Since opening its doors in 1983, the Buffalo Ronald McDonald House has welcomed more than 21,400 families from New York, surrounding states, and outside the USA providing them with safe, comfortable lodging while their child has been hospitalized in Buffalo.
