Since 2015, Friends for a Better Buffalo has partnered with the Evon Price Memorial Foundation, a (501c3 organization), with a yearly awards banquet to honor individuals in Michigan who have demonstrated consistent dedication to the community, their employer or a local organization; whose commitment level goes above and beyond the call of duty; or who have made contributions to their community without fanfare or asking for any reward in return. All proceeds from the Unsung Hero Awards Banquet benefits the Evon Price Memorial College Scholarship Fund designed to give collegiate opportunities to those who otherwise would struggle in their quest for higher education.
