BUFFALO, NY – University at Buffalo Athletics announced today a new multi-year relationship with Original Pizza Logs. It marks the first-of-its kind sponsorship in college sports for the Sanborn, NY-based company.
Original Pizza Logs’ products will be served at all UB Athletics concessions on game days starting with Fall events. Most notably, a portion of the proceeds from all sales made will be donated to WNY Heroes Little Heroes program. Original Pizza Logs then will match the total donation to make an even broader impact for the non-profit organization supporting Western New York Veterans.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Original Pizza Logs into the UB corporate partner family and appreciate their commitment to our athletics programming, as well as our area veterans and their families,” said Vice President and Director of Athletics Mark Alnutt. “As a veteran owned and operated company, we know supporting WNY Heroes is extremely important to Original Pizza Logs, and we are proud to align with them in the coming years and know our fans will too.”
Bulls Sports Properties, UB Athletics’ multimedia rightsholder and locally based Learfield team, secured the relationship with Original Pizza Logs on behalf of the university. In addition to the connection with WNY Heroes Little Heroes program through concession sales, Original Pizza Logs will have access to IP as the “Official Finger Food of UB Athletics” and receive visibility via UB Athletics’ digital, in-game promotion and signage throughout the agreement term.
“We’re proud to serve this community and give back whenever possible,” said Original Pizza Logs Owner Jason Cordova. “Without question, we share a special affinity with New York veterans, and we look forward to extending our brand and our ability to give back even more through our relationship with UB Athletics and its incredible fans.”
“We are honored to have been chosen for this amazing opportunity,” said Chris Kreiger Sr, President and Co-Founder of WNY Heroes. “We are able to offer remarkable services and programs because of the continued love and support like this from UB and the rest of WNY
