P E A R {Planning Events And Receptions} is proud to be hosting the first annual WHITE Party, Black Tie Affair {a Fashion Fundraiser} in December 2013 at University at Buffalo’s Center for the Arts Atrium and Art Gallery.

The WHITE Party has been created in an effort to bring awareness to many valuable, yet less talked about community programs in Buffalo, New York: therapy and counseling for children struggling with depression, self harm, suicidal thoughts and anxiety.

With an ever-rising awareness regarding mental health issues across the nation, there is an even larger need to increase the awareness of treatment services available for children with mental health issues. This year’s event proceeds from sponsorship, donations, fundraisers and silent auction will benefit a non-profit very close to P E A R’s heart, the DBT program of Child and Adolescent Treatment Services, a program that is creating preventative measures and positive emotions surrounding the stigma of mental health.

We are proud to announce the attendance and honoring of Darnell Barton as our Emotional Health Hero & Good Deed recipient.


On October 18, 37-year-old Darnell Barton was driving a bus full of McKinley High School students on the Scajaquada Expressway overpass when he spotted a woman on the wrong side of the guard rail.

After repeatedly asking if she was okay and getting minimal responses, Barton approached the woman so he could pull her to safety.

“She turned back to look at me and then back at the traffic and that’s when I kind of lunged and got my left arm around her body,” Barton told the Buffalo News. “I asked her, ‘Do you want to come on this side of the guard rail now?’ and that was the first time she spoke to me and said, ‘Yeah.’”

“Darnell won’t tell you this, but when he went back on his bus, the McKinley students gave him a round of applause,” Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA) spokesman C. Douglas Hartmayer told the Buffalo News. “That’s because of Darnell’s modesty, which speaks to his demeanor of being very humble.” (
