UB Community Care Ticket Program
The UB Athletics Community Care ticket program provides eligible non-profit agencies, qualified charitable organizations and disadvantaged youth groups in Western New York the opportunity to experience the thrill of attending big-time college athletic events.
Through the generosity of our Community Care sponsorship program over 4000 residents of Western New York are able to attend each UB Football home game played at UB Stadium. Tickets for select UB Basketball games played in Alumni Arena are available throughout the season as well.
|How can my organization become a Community Care ticket program sponsor?|
Participation in the club is an investment in our community and a unique opportunity to partner with the University at Buffalo Division of Athletics. Sponsorship opportunities are available at many different financial levels.
The University at Buffalo Division of Athletics appreciates the support of our Community Care ticket sponsors:
|How are the Community Care tickets used?|
- Field trips for K-8 school age children attending Buffalo Public Schools
- Residents and staff of group homes attend games
- K-8 school programs use tickets as incentives for their students
- Agencies disperse them to community members and reward volunteers
|"Thanks so much for the generosity and opportunity. What a great way to support our local school and teams and build community; I and my guests enjoyed the games, the environment and cheering for the Bulls."
Laura Greene ~ Catholic Charities Western New York
|“It is very generous indeed of UB to provide our employees here at Lake Shore such a kindness to be able to attend these family orientated games. Many of our employees have enjoyed and expressed gratitude for being able to attend these games for free! I would like to personally thank the University at Buffalo on behalf of Lake Shore Behavioral Health.”
Andrea Rosario ~ Lake Shore Behavioral Health
|"There is nothing like watching the face of a child who has never been to a game to be cheering and so full of joy for the Bulls. It helps to teach them about supporting your community and educates them too."
Carmaletta Morlock-Zandi ~ Morlock Foundation
|“This was the first year that Gateway-Longview offered these tickets to our employees, and they were a huge hit! Employees requested over 300 tickets to the Basketball and Football games for the 2016-2017 season. Being a not for profit agency we don't always have the means to offer additional benefits like this to our employees, so thank you UB for providing us this opportunity!"
Erin E. Brice, PHR, SHRM-CP ~ Vice President Human Resources, Gateway Longview
|"Thank you to everyone who make the free UB tickets possible. It allows a positive, safe, and fun environment for everyone to enjoy. Opportunities like this are needed for friends and family to come together in a positive social atmosphere. Again, many thanks!"
Curtis Steed ~ Family Vendor, Child and Family Services
