As the winner, Tyler received and autographed Buffalo Sabres team jersey of defenseman Mark Pysyk.  Also, due to the coincidence of him being identified the contest winner within the same week that the entire Buffalo Sabres player roster attended the annual Stones Buddies Holiday Party at Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, Tyler and his parents received this prize while meeting all the players in person.

The Buffalo Baby-Buffalo Sabres Facebook Photo Contest offers parents of babies born at Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo to show off their child as a proud fan of the Buffalo Sabres and to win an autographed prize each month from the Buffalo Sabres.  To learn more about this contest that continues in December, click here: http://www.kaleidahealth.org/kyi/news/?artID=4272

Players from the Buffalo Sabres attended the annual holiday party for patients and their families who are members of Stone’s Buddies, a network of chronically ill children followed by Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo.  The players frosted cookies, made crafts and signed autographs while visiting with the children and their families during this holiday celebration.

The mission of the Stone's Buddies program is to provide a network of resources, support, friendship and fun for the many "frequent flyers" that are regularly followed by Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo. This program is for children with life-threatening illness who can struggle daily with special needs and feelings of isolation due to the nature of their chronic illness.  To learn more, go online at http://stonesbuddies.com/
