Buffalo Niagara Builder's Assoc. "Raising the Roof" for Roswell

Members of the Buffalo Niagara Builder's Association are chipping in to help fight cancer through the "Raise the Roof" campaign.

BUFFALO, NY - Members of the Buffalo Niagara Builder's Association are chipping in to help fight cancer through the "Raise the Roof" campaign.

A number of local home builders set a goal of raising $250,000 for Roswell Park, which was already met by Tuesday.

The idea to donate some proceeds from the sale of new homes came when a number of builders realized they were all affected by cancer in some way.

"They talked about how they wanted to make a difference," said past BNBA president Jim Maloney. "It was deciding by doing what they do best, building beautiful homes, they could make a difference in the lives of those who battle cancer."

A few homes built for the campaign called the "Roswell homes" will be a part of the Horizon tour of homes in Erie County next month.
