On August 25th, AAF Buffalo hosted its annual Big Tip Off! Where WNY advertising and marketing pros come together to enjoy good drinks, partake in friendly rivalries and most importantly raise money for the AAF Buffalo Scholarship Fund.

This year’s event was held at Sky Bar, one of Buffalo’s long-time favorite rooftop bars. The main event of the night was the competition between 9 of Buffalo’s top agencies for most tips. Each agency elected a “celebrity bartender” to represent them and compete in the showdown. Our bartenders provided fun themes, signature drinks and a lot of fun.

By the end of the night we raised $4,231! It will all go toward the AAF Buffalo scholarship fund that supports the local advertising community by awarding local high school and college students annually.

So, who won the all important bragging rights?

  • Crowley Webb came in 1st place
  • Mower came in 2nd place
  • and FIFTEEN came in 3rd place

Thank you to the participating companies for lending their bartending talent for the night. And kudos to everyone who attended and donated. We’re already looking forward to next year!
