In conjunction with the Aces and Blades fundraiser, the 2008 Corporate Challenge pairs Sabres Alumni with members of participating companies in a 16-team tournament to raise money for the Sabres Foundation.

The Buffalo Sabres Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit foundation that is committed to enhancing the quality of life for the Western New York region. In the process, the foundation strives to assist worthwhile organizations that make this region a better place to live and work. The primary focus of the foundation is to assist youth hockey initiatives, children's health and wellness initiatives, specifically those that serve the underprivileged and handicapped, and to provide support to non-profit organizations and groups that provide vital services to those in need in our community.
