In the last Young Money blog, I gave a rundown of some of the organizations in Western New York that are here for young professionals to get involved in – whether for networking, leadership development or industry connectivity.
Working for a non-profit myself, when I heard about the region’s newest group for young professionals, the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network, I…
Remember when Buffalo First!‘s IndieSound took over Allentown and Amherst Street in past summers, inviting local musicians to perform on sidewalks to further enliven blossoming neighborhoods?
Well, Buffalo Porchfest intends to build upon a similar concept, just replacing chairs and music stands on sidewalks with the porches of Elmwood Village residents.
Running from 1 to 5…

Well, I apparently speak more like I’m from Rochester than Buffalo.
North Carolina State graduate student Joshua Katz—the author of the remarkably telling ‘pop vs. soda’ map from June—returns with another survey that aggregates your dialect through a series of questions and places you in the region that speaks most similarly.
Take the 25-question survey here, but be wary that…

Part of TEDxBuffalo’s beauty is that it’s not a gathering of CEOs or absurdly wealthy individuals who’ve advanced to the top of the corporate world and aspire to explain their secrets to success.
Instead, the annual event—now in its third year—exposes the ideas of some of our region’s most creative individuals to a local audience that’s eager to absorb information and effect…

Buffalo Bills fans are a tight-knit bunch—there’s solace in numbers, I suppose—but their passion extends well beyond the boundaries of Western New York.
Matt Kabel, co-founder of NYC Bills Backers, has been a staunch ‘Bill’-iever—in a more impactful way than adding another voice to the chorus of “Hey-ay-ay-ays!” and doling out aggressive high-fives after a C.J. Spiller jaunt…

A few months ago, I blogged about a few different groups in Western New York that young professionals can engage in to help with personal or professional development.
Since then, a few new groups have popped up on the young professional scene and a few more already established groups deserve a mention as well.
Like my last roundup, what you see below is just a quick hitter about…

Is Toronto Mayor Rob Ford part of a reality show we don’t know about yet?
After causing quite a stir by becoming an overnight internet sensation and allegedly smoking a crack pipe, Ford can now add “arm wrestling” to his list of hobbies.
The event was set up for media-only to create some buzz around Hogan’s appearance at the Fan Expo Canada Convention.
The bout started with…

While introducing local luminaries today at University at Buffalo’s Alumni Arena, President Barack Obama committed a slight blunder.
In recognizing Buffalo’s mayor, Obama confidently exclaimed “Brian Higgins!”—who’s actually the Democratic congressman for New York State’s 26th district, which includes Buffalo and Niagara Falls. We’re speculating that Buffalo mayor Byron Brown…
