BUFFALO, N.Y.– The annual tradition of the Buffalo Auto Show has returned to the Convention center. Wednesday night, the Niagara Frontier Auto Dealers Association hosted a Preview Gala for the annual auto show, sponsored by Independent Health.
Net ticket proceeds of the gala will benefit the NFADA Charitable Foundation, which has donated more than half a million dollars in grants to various WNY organizations since it began in 1999. Some of these organizations include: The Buffalo Branch of National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, MERCYflight WNY Pediatric Initiative, Gilda’s Club WNY, Kids Escaping Drugs, and Summit Educational Resources – serving more than 1700 WNY children with autism and related developmental disabilities.
Beginning Thursday through Sunday, spectators will have plenty to look at. Every new car brand sold in WNY will be on display, including a selection of SUV’s, Hybrids, Minivans, High Performance and Economical Cars and Trucks. The show will also feature high-end sports cars for the potential buyer, and those with a dream of going 180mph.
President of the NFADA, Paul Stasiak, says this Western New York tradition has a dual meaning.
“Well our car business is very important, it is a big part of the fabric of Western New York, so when we have an opportunity to give back, it really makes the show a little bit more than an opportunity to show cars.”
Thursday through Saturday, public viewing hours are from 10am until 10pm; Sunday from 10am to 7pm. Tickets for the Auto Show are $10 at the door, $8 presale. Children 5 years of age and younger get in for free. Presale tickets may be purchased at TOPS, NOCO, Wegmans, Dash’S Market, or online.
