(WNY News Now) – Members of the Fredonia Radio Systems’ (FRS) executive board, from the State University of New York at Fredonia, embarked on a significant journey to Buffalo, NY, delivering a check of $1,445—surpassing last year’s donation by $300. The funds, raised at the Rockin’ the Commons event on September 23, were presented to Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Buffalo – In a check presentation ceremony at the Scott Bieler Clinical Sciences Center in October, FRS handed over the substantial donation to representatives Allison Lockwood and Amanda Berg from the Roswell Park Alliance Foundation. The funds will contribute to cancer research, treatment, and prevention programs at Roswell.

The Rockin’ the Commons event on September 23, 2023 featured additional live music and activities from first-time participants FREDGrows and the student Psychology Club, enhancing the overall success of the fundraising effort.

“I’d like to thank everyone who helped out that day. Whether it was working a table, hosting an activity, donating or just coming out to listen to the music, it means a lot,” said FRS General Manager Hunter Halterman. “Your support is what made our Roswell donation.”

Sales of food, CD and vinyl discs helped to generate the funds.
