The Buffalo & Erie County Historical Society's Red Jacket Award is given annually in recognition of quiet, continued, unbroken devotion to civic progress.

Greene, as recipients of the award. Wisbaum is an attorney and devoted public servant, as is Christopher Greene. The late Finley Greene was a fundraising professional who aided many non-profit causes and organizations over the course of his decades-long career.
