Event Alert! We think we all realize the BNMC did not consider all alternatives, several which could include saving and reusing the entire building. Considering that the BNMC needs over 5+million square feet according to their own master plan, one would imagine that they would want to save and reuse this nationally registered building, no? This event is aimed to raise cash to hire the folks that can really study reuse options for the iconic Trico building. Come and bring a friend!
On Wednesday, January 30th from 6-9pm @ the Pan Am Brewery, the Buffalo Young Preservationists, Preservation Buffalo Niargar and the Save Trico Preservation Round Table are hosting “Cheers for Trico” a community meeting & fundraising event!
From 6-7pm, a community meeting will be held to explain the importance of Trico to our local economy and history. Rocco Termini and others will be leading the conversation.
From 7-9pm, the fundraising will begin (beer, art, 50/50 split) to collect money to fund an alternative study to identify other reuse options that were not explored (but should have been) by the BNMC.
Rocco Termini will be donating a portion of the drink sales. Buffalo’s Young Preservationists will be collecting $$$ donations and raffling off two sets of hand made “Trico” art created by by historian/artist Chris Kameck. This is going to be both educational AND really fun. All are welcome to come.
