‘Fire and Ice’ event set for March 16

The Greater Niagara Frontier Council will hold one of its largest annual fundraising events, “Fire and Ice,” from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, March 16, at the Hotel at the Lafayette, 391 Washington St.

The chairman of the event will once again be Eagle Scout and local attorney William Mattar. All proceeds of the event go directly to support local Western New York Scouting programs, according to a press release.

“We are very excited to host ‘Fire and Ice’ in the heart of downtown Buffalo’s resurgence,” said Mattar, noting that the area also happens to be the center of Scouting’s resurgence in Western New York.

Tickets are $195 each or $350 per couple and are available at www.wnyscouting.org. In addition, there are a number of sponsorships available for the event. To help everyone enjoy the evening safely, complimentary service from Designated Drivers of Buffalo will be available, courtesy of Mattar.

“Fire and Ice” celebrates the Scouting experience and the positive impact Scouting has on youth, their families and volunteers, the release said.

Attendees will come together for an evening of music, themed food stations, cocktails and auctions.

“We owe the yearly success of this exciting event to all the volunteers, sponsors and supporters of Scouting,” Mattar said in the release. “Today’s Scouts are tomorrow’s leaders. The support we receive for fundraising events such as ‘Fire and Ice’ helps maintain Scouting programs for area youth and nurture the future of our communities.”

Since the GNFC was founded more than 100 years ago, tens of thousands of youth in the region have gone through its various Scouting programs, according to the release, which described the Boy Scouts of America as the nation’s premier values based youth development organization.

“The mission of the BSA is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law,” the release said.
