The August Feine House is in the heart of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC).  The 7,800 square foot home was built by John Iribacher in 1888 and was purchased by Feine in 1906. Originally from Germany, Feine was an artisan and leader in the field of hand forged wrought iron work in the early 20th Century.  He specialized in ornamental iron latticework and examples of his talents are visible througout the interior and exterior of this historic structure.  

When the restoration of the house is complete, it will become the newest component of the Kevin Guest House (KGH), a four-building campus hosting patients and families traveling to Buffalo for medical care.  The additional of this house to the campus will double the number of guests KGH can host, provide handicap accessibility and will provide larger suites for families.

The Junior League of Buffalo, in conjunction with The Buffalo News, has raised more than $3.9 million to benefit the Western New York community through revenue generated by the Decorators’ Show Houses.

The Founding of Kevin Guest House

  • Founded by Claudia and Cyril Garvey of Sharon, PA in honor of their son Kevin.
  • Kevin passed away in January 1972 at the age of 13 after an eighteen month fight against leukemia.
  • During Kevin’s treatment at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, the Garveys became aware of many other families that were unable to find affordable lodging. They saw families sleeping in their cars and waiting rooms.
  • Shortly before Kevin’s death, Mr. and Mrs. Garvey purchased the property located at 782 Ellicott Street and renovated the house with the support of volunteers and donations from the community.
  • Kevin Guest House welcomed their first guest on July 26, 1972. First in America
  • America’s first healthcare hospitality house.
  • Over 53,000 guests have stayed including guests from 49 states, Canada, and eleven other countries.
  • Kevin Guest House paved the way for the more than 600 healthcare hospitality houses across the country today, including the inspiration for a family to start Ronald McDonald House

Here is more information about Russell J. Salvatore:

Mr. Salvatore is owner of the acclaimed Russell’s Steaks, Chops, and More & Salvatore’s Grand Hotel in Williamsville, known for his immense generosity to countless charities as a leading philanthropist in Western New York.

A child of immigrant parents, Russell J. Salvatore started in the restaurant business at his father’s East Delevan Avenue location in the 1930’s. He served in the Army in the 1950’s. In 1967, Mr. Salvatore sold his home, and purchased a small pizza business that would later become Salvatore’s Italian Garden’s for just $40,000. After leaving that business at age 75, Mr. Salvatore decided he was not done and opened Russell’s Steaks, Chops, and More and Salvatore’s Grand Hotel in 2008. Russell’s has been honored as the top Steakhouse in New York State.

Through the years, Russell has always given back to the community in so many ways. He has purchased tens of thousands of Buffalo Bills tickets so blacked out games could air on television, and those less fortunate could attend. Trocaire College School of Hospitality; Erie County Medical Center; and Shea’s Center for the Performing Arts are just some of the organizations Mr. Salvatore has supported as a philanthropist.

However, Mr. Salvatore points to the “Patriot’s and Heroes Park” outside his Transit Road location part of what he hopes will be his lasting legacy. The park includes works created by longtime artist and friend Don Parrino that remember the 9/11 tragedy; the Crash of Flight 3407; and recognize the brave men and women who proudly served our country, including those who received the Purple Heart.
