The party will take place in Alumni Plaza, presented by Tops Friendly Markets, located outside of the arena along Perry Street. The event will feature live music from Nik and the Nice Guys and food and beverages will also be available for purchase. There will also be special appearances by Sabres alumni and Sabretooth throughout the event.
