“We initially intended have a photo booth and raise money for the charities at the National Buffalo Wing Festival,” says Kurt Amico, President of MidCity Office Furniture. “Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and we found a creative way to help raise money and awareness for the charities. This should gain a lot of attention for Meals on Wheels, Big Brother, Big Sister and Variety Club and help them out.”
