Nurses Night Returns to Buffalo

Afun night is in store for any healthcare worker to enjoy.

“Nurses’ Night — Celebrating ALL Healthcare Heroes” will take place from 5-9 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 11 at the M Hotel ballroom (formerly Millennium Hotel next to the Walden Galleria).

Organizer Paul D. Maurer has put together healthcare vendors, a marketplace of food, wine, desserts, fine jewelry, apparel, games, stage entertainment and crafts.

The event is presented by main sponsor Trusted Nurse Staffing.

The last Nurses’ Night was in May 2019.

“We wanted to continue this successful Western New York event every year, but COVID-19 altered our plans,” said Maurer.  “Now, we have a much bigger event because we are also honoring all the healthcare heroes who got us through the pandemic!”

Now through Sept.11, people can send nominations for the award.  To nominate, go to and fill out the questionnaire.  Cash prizes to the top “hero” will be $500; second prize, $250; and third prize, $150 in gift certificates. Winners will be announced and awarded to the top vote-getters on the Trocaire College stage on Oct. 11.

Tickets for Nurses’ Night are $9.50 and can be purchased at

Sponsors include Kaleida Health, CeraVe, McGuire Health/Absolut Health, UnitedHealthcare, BestSelf Behavioral Health, Basil Family of Dealerships and Bry Lin Hospital.
