Three great fundraisers are taking place in Springville on Saturday, Oct. 3.
The Springville Elementary School PTA is partnering with Schoolathon.org to bring an entertaining and exciting 3K/5K race to town that involves runners being blasted with food-grade, non-toxic packets of color along the course. Choose between a 3K or 5K route with two color/water stations along the way, where participants can hydrate and observers can purchase color packs to blast on the registrants. $30 covers race entry, a t-shirt and color pack. Register at http://shop.schoolathon.org/EventIndex.asp?EID=181364.
The same evening also brings The Harvest Wine & Food Festival to Springville, a celebration of food culture that benefits The Trading Community Care Center & Fellowship Hill Ministry Programs, a non-profit that serves hundred of families per year from southern Erie, Cattaraugus and Wyoming Counties.
The festival will be held on Saturday, Oct. 3 from 4-9 p.m. at the Springville Fire Hall, and will boast an array of samples from local wineries, food trucks, and restaurants, plus guest chef cooking demos, a wine and basket auction, food gift items and more.

And for yet another fun option, try your luck with A Night at the Derby fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 3, from 6 to 10:30 p.m. Nine different races will be projected on a video projection system to give everyone the feeling that they are at the derby, and prizes are determined by the number of participants and how many raffle tickets are purchased for each horse. Proceeds benefit Springville Youth Inc. (SYI), a not-for-profit organization that provides recreation services for the residents of the Town of Concord and Village of Springville. Tickets are $20 each; beer, pop and pizza are included. It all takes place at St. Aloysius Parish Hall, 190 Franklin Street in Springville. Visit www.syionline.org.
