What: Check presentation to People Inc. from Tops Friendly Markets representing the proceeds from the Tops Tent and Prize wheel from the 2019 Taste of Buffalo.

Why: Tops Friendly Markets takes great pride in giving back to the communities we serve and what better way to do so than by being the presenting sponsor of The Taste of Buffalo. While this is an event Tops looks forward to being involved in, it is the impact this event has on the community that brings Tops back year after year.

For the past sixteen years, Tops has served not only as the title sponsor for this event but also as a vendor, but the underlying goal that day however, is to fulfill our philanthropic mission. While participants are enjoying the many delicious foods under the Tops tent, including our infamous strawberry shortcake or trying their luck on the Tops prize wheel-the true joy comes in that we are really giving back to our fellow neighbors in need as 100% of the proceeds from the Tops tent and prize wheel benefit a new charity each and every year. This year’s beneficiary was People Inc.

Tomorrow a check will be presented representing the monies raised during the 2019 Taste of Buffalo event which is in excess of $13,000.
