The International Institute of Buffalo is reimagining its major annual fundraiser this year by introducing Buffalo Without Borders To Go. 
The International Institute of Buffalo supports refugees, immigrants, foreign born survivors of domestic violence, and all survivors of human trafficking. The need for resources and opportunities has only increased due to the stress of the crisis.
This year’s event will take place over the course of four Monday evenings in late October and early November. Each night, you’ll receive dinner for two that’s prepared by a local immigrant-owned restaurant, a bag full of local goodies, and cultural activities to participate in at home. 
There will be interactive materials about the country, an audio playlist to listen to at dinner, a craft project, a kitchen gift, a staycation travel experience, recipes from the restaurant and local home cooks, and historical content about each culture.
