On Friday, April 17 at 6pm, Buffalo's Biggest Trivia Competition was held at Salvatore's Italian Gardens to benefit Cradle Beach. Even though we didn't win, we were very proud to be the highest fundraising team. Our CTBK Trivia Gurus:

Cradle Beach has served thousands of children with disabilities and those who come from some of the poorest sections of Buffalo and Western New York. Cradle Beach offers three unique programs that meet the educational, social, emotional and physical needs of each child while helping those children achieve their full potential in life.
All proceeds from the competition and the cocktail party will benefit Cradle Beach programs and services, including:
Residential Summer Enrichment Program - Every summer nearly 800 children are served in this summer camping program – the program addresses the academic "summer slide" that low-income children experience that contributes greatly towards these children not graduating from high school. Children with and without disabilities are fully integrated in this program, allowing for all children to have full access to all programming and services while living together in cabin units.
Project SOAR - A school-based educational and leadership program grounded in our philosophy that students who are engaged with peers from diverse backgrounds, in an active learning environment, will develop the skills they need to succeed in school, career, and life.
Respite - A program that offers a reprieve from the daily tasks associated with caring for a loved one who needs special attention.
