Buffalo Snow Bowl – Thank You!

This past Saturday saw supporters of Special Olympics NY take to the gridiron at New Era Field in the first annual Buffalo Snow Bowl fundraiser.  With temperatures reminiscent of a Bills’ home playoff game in January and snow flurries throughout the day, the setting was perfect for 6-on-6 flag football action.  It was a thrilling experience for everyone involved, and we look forward to making it even bigger and better next year!

A special thank you to our photographer, Ken Smith, who braved the elements and other obstacles to provide us with this outstanding photo gallery from the day!
