LIVE WELL FESTIVAL — Looking for new ways to be healthier that don’t just involve running and salads? Then the Live Well Buffalo Festival is the event to attend.

The 2019 Live Well Buffalo Festival returns from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 27, at Wilkeson Pointe at the Buffalo Outer Harbor, 225 Fuhrmann Blvd.

Hosted by Step Out Buffalo, the Live Well Buffalo Festival is a wellness fest that provides the perfect chance to try new fitness classes, learn different ways to be healthy, discover new local businesses, taste new foods and drinks, and more.

Local gurus, wellness brands, vendors, and fitness experts from across WNY will provide items to demo, sample, buy, win, and partake in that will help motivate everyone to be their best self — mentally and physically.

Tickets are $10 and will include admission to the event and access to health and wellness brands and vendors demonstrating, offering samples, and selling products. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door with cash or credit card. A portion of the proce will benefit the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

SENIOR WISHES — Senior Wishes is looking for seniors who could use a bit of extra joy. The local non-profit’s mission is to fulfill wishes that may have been set aside by qualifying seniors.

A wish can be any meaningful experience the recipient deeply desires. Past wishes have included traveling to visit long-missed family, cheering on a favorite team in person and revisiting an abandoned hobby. Whatever the wish, Senior Wishes wants to hear about it.

“Senior Wishes was created to foster respect and appreciation by providing seniors with a life-enriching experience to be remembered,” said Wendy Miller Backman, Senior Wishes executive director. “These are people who have spent their lives serving our country, caring for others, volunteering in the community and raising their families. We want them to know they are not forgotten.”

Wish recipients must be age 65 or older and a resident of Western New York with an annual income under $38,000 for a household of one, or under $44,000 for a household of two. Permanent residents of care facilities are exempt from the income qualification.

Vacations, medical items, household repairs, bill payments and travel outside the continental U.S. are excluded.
