The Erwin Child & Family Center (ECFC) Fundraiser event has been going strong for 14 years. This year we have a new venue and theme! Get ready to support a great cause and dance through the evening at our MARDI GRAS GALA, held at The Corning Museum of Glass on the first Friday in March.

The 2018 ECFC Fundraiser will support the purchase of replacing aging program equipment like buggies, classroom tables and chairs, sensory tables, outdoor toys, and musical instruments. The Erwin Child & Family Center is a program offered by Pathways, Inc.

Throughout the night, dance to Buffalo’s premier Zydeco band Black Rock Zydeco, taste New Orleans-inspired food and desserts, sample bourbon from local distilleries, participate in our silent auction and purchase a slice of the King's Cake for a chance to win a prize.

While this is not a formal event, we invite you to come festively dressed and encourage fun masks and outfits!

ENTERTAINMENT
Buffalo-based band, Black Rock Zydeco delivers a mix of stand-out original songs and Cajun/Creole favorites from classic and contemporary performers.
