Local CPA Firm Teams with Franklinville School District to Deliver Holiday Greetings

Buffamante Whipple Buttafaro, P.C. (BWB), a regional certified public accounting and business advisory firm, recently partnered with Franklinville School District for their 8th Annual Holiday Card Contest.
"Each year our Firm draws on the creativity and talent of one of our school district clients. The students at Franklinville School District came up with some beautiful designs this year for our annual Thanksgiving holiday cards," stated Leslie Hoisington, Marketing Coordinator for BWB.
Fifth grade students participated in the contest hosted by BWB and were asked to design a card in any way they chose with a Thanksgiving theme. The cards were judged based on creativity and neatness.

The three chosen cards were designed by Kendra Giboo, Kendall Trietley and Joshua Haskell. Their designs were used for the Buffamante Whipple Buttafaro, P.C., Vineyard Group, LLC and GFC Business Systems' holiday cards. Each winner received a bag filled with art supplies, along with copies of their printed card and their artwork framed.

"This has really become a program we look forward to each year. We enjoy seeing the excitement and joy the students express when we reveal the winning card designs and we always wind up with unique cards to send to our clients, business contacts and friends," added Hoisington.

"What a wonderful opportunity for 5th grade students," stated Jessica Schirrmacher-Smith, Franklinville Elementary Principal. "Congratulations to Kendra, Kendall and Joshua on their creative artwork being selected as the winning cards. A special thanks to all of our artist participants as well as BWB, for selecting Franklinville Elementary as this year's featured school for this fantastic program," she added.

BWB maintains offices in Jamestown, Olean and Orchard Park, New York. Currently, their staff consists of fifty employees, making them the largest CPA firm in Southwestern New York, inclusive of their full-service payroll company, GFC Business Systems and their multi-faceted business and consulting affiliate, the Vineyard Group, LLC.
