The Niagara Frontier Doll Club’s 36th annual Doll Show & Sale will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15 in the Buffalo Airport Hotel, 4600 Genesee St. at Holtz Road, Cheektowaga. The hotel will also offer food and beverage service for show attendees at Sports 365 Bar & Grill.
Admission to the event, featuring antique and collectible dolls, bears, miniatures and related items, is just $5 per person, with children under 12 admitted free. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Stella Niagara Women’s Respite Program (WRP) and Sister Johnice’s Response to Love Center.
The WRP was founded in 1989 to provide respite to single mothers with low income. The program has since expanded to include retreats for all mothers with low income, grandmothers raising grandchildren, women with cancer and alumnae of previous retreats.
At the Response to Love Center, located at 130 Kosciuszko St. in Buffalo, the focus is on the holistic treatment of poverty — loving care of the economically deprived, the spiritually poor, the emotionally battered, the isolated, the wounded and the broken.
Also this year, the Doll Club will raffle off two very special items with proceeds going to the charities listed above: A large, fully furnished Georgian-style dollhouse and a room box decorated as a magician’s room in a castle!
