The origin of Gaunches Unite

Our organization is fairly new. We have grown in numbers and in success at a rapid pace.

What is a Gaunch?

Gaunch was a term coined by a Varsity Football player in 1977 and popularized by a Phys Ed teacher in the 1980'S in Orchard Park, NY. The term was used as an insult but proudly embraced by a group of school age boys and girls dressed in leather and denim who enjoyed intoxicating good times. They would gather together often and share in their love of fast cars, loud music, and keg parties. Many "Gaunches" seem to have been in trouble with the law from time to time. School was not as much a place of education but as a playground to bring teachers and administrators to their knees. Fueled by the love of a good time and an irreverence to the status quo. Many Gaunches have grown into responsible loving parents and successful citizens and have created their own 501c3 organization to give back to the community.

Recently a group of adult former Gaunches have reconnected on Facebook and are sharing memories of their youth, honoring Gaunches of old, and those who have passed. They have also created their own 501c3 charity and are giving back to the community and helping those in need.

Please help us raise $$$$$to help those who have no where else to turn!
