Come be a part of Buffalo's biggest outdoor Winter Event! Raising money for P.U.N.T. Pediatric Cancer Collaborative
Helping WNY families fighting pediatric cancer in the ways they need it most.
In 2024, The Backyard Classic is proud to support P.U.N.T. Pediatric Cancer Collaborative!
This powerful, grassroots community nonprofit is the “go to” source of assistance in WNY, for families facing pediatric cancer.
When a child is diagnosed with cancer, it poses a threat to every facet of family life. There is a tidal wave of hardship – physical, financial, and emotional – that can last a lifetime.
P.U.N.T. is there every step of the way from diagnosis to recovery and even in the unthinkable wake of a loss.
The Backyard Classic is honored to be part of their team!
We're Back!! Our 15th Anniversary Celebration!!
...And Better Than Ever!!
