The Buffalo Sabres Alumni Association has been a dedicated partner of Roswell Park for more than 20 years, often focusing its giving toward efforts that positively impact women with cancer. Elevate Salon is made possible in part by a generous gift from the Sabres Alumni in support of all patients who will seek comfort and peace there. This new space has also been made possible through the generosity of Michael and Kirsten Lawley and the Lawley family, as well as Bunkie Hawk.
