"Gimme Jimmy" tonight at Coca-Cola Field

    Friends of the late Jim Griffin will gather tonight for one last fund raiser for "the mayor."
   A committee hoping to raise funds for a memorial to Buffalo's longest-serving mayor will gather at Pettibone's Grille at Coca-Cola Field at 5:30 p.m. to raise funds for what it hopes will be a permanent memorial to Griffin. He is credited with being the driving force behind the construction of the downtown ball park in 1988, and now his friends and supporters seek to erect the monument outside Coca-Cola Field.
   Remaining funds will benefit the James D. Griffin Fund at Dent Neurological Research Institute.
