We appreciate your support of the
Maria Love Convalescent Fund!
Learn more about how we distribute the funds raised to the people of Erie County.
Additional donations appreciated!

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.


The Maria Love Fund Board of Directors invite your children to attend the 120th Maria Love Charity Ball to raise funds for children and families with medically related needs in Erie County!  This is a great opportunity to explain to our young people how attending can help those less fortunate in our own community, while having a fun night out with friends! The Maria Love Fund is a bridge to independence providing interim financial support to the people of Erie County with convalescent needs. 

Angel and Giving tickets include admission to the dance, a variety of snacks, photo booth, selfie station, entertainment by DJ Yes and DJ Milk, and your donation to the Maria Love Convalescent Fund!! General Admission tickets also available. Learn more about the Fund here.  

There will be both a Middle School and a High School dance at RiverWorks Buffalo!  Semi-formal attire for both dances. Girls are encouraged to wear a dress or dressy pants and blouse. Boys are encouraged to wear a sports coat.

Parents and guardians are not allowed into the dance, however you are more than welcome to enjoy yourself in the restaurant area of Buffalo RiverWorks at your leisure. Reservations recommended at buffaloriverworks.com or call 844.749.2267.
