Upcoming Events

For more than 17 years, Lawyers for Learning has coordinated hundreds of volunteer tutors from the Buffalo legal community for weekly tutoring sessions with students at Buffalo Public School 18. In addition to our Buffalo tutoring program, LFL sponsors students from P.S. 18 to attend sleep away camp at YMCA Camp Weona, coordinates field trips, and assists in the provision of necessary educational resources such as school uniforms, workbooks and scientific calculators. Our most recent project is the cultivation of a community garden across the street from the school, where the students enjoyed a hands on learning experience.

19th Annual Bowling Tournament

 Please join us at: Airport Lanes, 3754 Genesee St.

                              Cheektowaga, NY 14225

It's time for another fun evening of bowling and camaraderie in support of the students at Buffalo Public School 18. In addition to the weekly one-on-one tutoring the group has provided for the last 20 years, contributions from the legal community have allowed Lawyers for Learning to send dozens of inner city children to summer camp at the YMCA's Camp Weona, sponsor many educational field trips, and to continue work on the community garden across the street from the school. This year Lawyers for Learning has been facilitating the purchase of the property of the community garden to be put in trust for the school to ensure it will be available for future generations to enjoy. Thank you for your continued support of Lawyers for Learning, which makes these programs possible.

 

            As in past years, all teams are encouraged to wear costumes to the event and a trophy will be presented to the team with the best group costume!

 

     The Bowling Tournament sold out last year and some teams could not join in the festivities.  Sign up early to be a part of this annual tradition!
