News Release

Building on this year\'s success, and based on the impact and enthusiasm received from community leaders regarding the Creditors Interchange youth initiative, the Buffalo Silverbacks are proud to unveil an entirely new division of the "Do Your Best, Never Quit" platform. This division is targeted to deliver the "Do Your Best, Never Quit" message "bed to bed" at local hospitals, treatment and rehabilitation centers where this message of hope is desperately needed.

This summer, the Creditors Interchange "Do Your Best, Never Quit" youth seminar was delivered to over 70 groups of children across the Western New York region. With the creation of the new division, 150 additional seminars are planned totaling over 200 for the upcoming year.

Commitment to continue this effort and reach out to thousands of children requires multiple partners on all levels. To truly realize the impact, and experience what we want you to become a part of, you need to be in attendance Aug 30th, 9:30 AM at Old 1st Ward Community Center. Join Congressman Brian Higgins and witness first hand, the spark in the children\'s eyes as they hear this message of hope and inspiration to overcome personal adversities by learning to reach deep within themselves.

The Silverbacks welcome any business wishing to share this type of emotional involvement with the community to please be present August 30th, 9:30 AM at Old 1st Ward Community Center in Buffalo.

Note: OurSports Central no longer actively covers the American Basketball Association (ABA) as a professional league due in part to its inability to publish and play a schedule and the transitory nature of many of its teams.
