Firefighter Ronald D. Finalists for M&T Bank “What’s Important To You” Video Contest!

Vote for Ron through Monday, Nov. 19 at

The first ever M&T Bank “What’s Important to You?” video contest announced their five finalists and out of 200 submissions one of the five selected finalists includes Buffalo Firefighter Ronald D!

The Video Contest is an initiative that seeks to capture the life moments, both big and small, that really matter and share them for the world to see.

As a Firefighter, Ronald risks his life in the service of others. But that’s not the most important job he holds. “Every moment that I spend with my son means the world to me,” he wrote alongside his moving video submission of a rainy day he and Jr. spent together at Delaware Park.

The community has an opportunity to view Ronald’s and other contestants to vote by Monday, November 19th. The grand prize winner will receive a GoPro® camera to continue capturing life’s most important moments and have what’s important to them featured in the M&T advertising campaign that will air across the Northeastern United States.
