For several weeks, we have seen Blue Buffaloes all around town with a sign saying 7/16/18. Well, today is 7/16/18 and we found out what the Blue Buffaloes were all about!

This morning Roswell Park held a news conference announcing that the Blue Buffaloes are part of "Herd Of Hope" a fundraising effort to fight the battle against cancer.

Area businesses and individuals can adopt one of the Blue Buffaloes for a donation to Roswell Park to fund cancer research.

So far 33 businesses (including Mix 96) have adopted one of the buffaloes!
