At the Downstairs Cabaret Theatre, BNL performed to raise money for
17-year-old Anthony Salmon, who was seriously injured during a September football game.
The show was organized by WPXY-FM.
About 100 of the station's listeners could attend the show,
and were asked to make a donation.

BNL also visited the
Golisano Children's Hospital at Strong Memorial Hospital (University of Rochester),
where they signed autographs and gave an improvised performance.

Mix 100.5 FM conducted an auction (tickets to the Peepshow and a guitar signed by the band),
with proceeds going to the Golisano Children's Hospital
and the Salvation Army to help with damage from fires in California.
(The winning bid was $ 6'500)
