Buffalo, NY (WIVB) – Hundreds of blue pumpkins will be sold this weekend, with all funds going to support the Buffalo Police Department’s K9 Division.

The fundraiser is in memory of Lieutenant Craig Lehner, who was killed in a training accident five years ago. Alison Milligan launched a fundraiser, and her husband, who served in the military with Reiner, wanted to give back to him.

“The community has been great. I love seeing people come forward to support this cause, support law enforcement, and help keep Craig Reiner’s memory alive,” Milligan said.

The Blue Pumpkin Sale is taking place October 1-2 at West Woodside Avenue in South Buffalo from 8am to 9pm. Over a six-year period, the campaign raised more than $30,000 for Buffalo Police.
