Cheektowaga Graduate’s Song Hits Top 12 in International Contest

Cheektowaga Graduate’s Song Hits Top 12 in International Contest

When 1986 Cheektowaga Central graduate Lisa Barrett set out to write a song several years ago, it had nothing to do with making the big time or signing a record deal.

She took pen to paper in mourning of her nephew, Austin, who lost his battle with cancer just shy of his second birthday. While she had performed in church folk groups and high school musicals, she never had written a song, but she wanted to be Austin’s voice.

“If you've never experienced it, there is no greater pain than the loss of a child,” she said.

Risk Pays Off as Crowley Webb Campaign for Praxis Takes First Place

Risk Pays Off as Crowley Webb Campaign for Praxis Takes First Place

BUFFALO, NY – Crowley Webb, a full-service marketing communications agency in Buffalo, NY, earned first place honors for its Praxis Communications’ 2010 direct mail campaign at this year’s Business Marketing Association’s ACE Awards. The annual national awards recognize innovative creative campaigns that inform and transform the way people do business.

The direct mail pieces feature people engaged in risky behavior – a man feeding steak to a bear in one and a woman watching television in a bathtub in another – with the message that it’s even riskier to recruit patients for clinical research studies without the aid of Praxis. “We are thrilled to be recognized for this campaign,” said David Buck, Crowley Webb president. “It speaks to our commitment to developing campaigns that produce results for our clients, while demonstrating the talent of our team.”

Local Artisan's Work to Adorn Altarpiece

From the moment the Rev. Dr. R. William Franklin becomes Bishop of Western New York on April 30, 2011, Western New York will be always be near at hand and close to his heart.

The first thing those attending the consecration service being held at 11 a.m. at the University at Buffalo’s Center for the Arts are likely to notice will be the 8 foot wide custom altar frontal.

The frontal was designed by the Reinvestment Group from St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Westfield, NY, using fabrics donated by churches around our seven county diocese.
