Welcome to the “Beard for Bucks” team page sponsored by the Buffalo Police Benevolent Association and the Buffalo Police Department.
The Buffalo Police Benevolent Association in cooperation with the Buffalo Police Department will be allowing Police Officers to grow beards from November 1, 2016 until December 16, 2016 in order to raise money for cancer research at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Police personnel interested in participating in this program must sign up at the Buffalo Police Federal Credit Union and donate $25. The Buffalo PBA will match that amount. This is a gender neutral program so: all police personnel are eligible to join the cause. At the conclusion of this event there will be a ceremony where participants will have their beards shaved in front of local media. Last year this program raised over $18,000 for Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
This year the sponsors of this event are allowing retirees, family members, friends and the public to join this fundraising affair. No donation is too small and every dollar raised gets us closer to a cure.
Cancer is a disease that touches everyone and it will take a comprehensive effort to put an end to the suffering. Together we can find the cure and prevent loss of life, maybe even for someone you know.
