BISON Fund Events

2017 Annual Celebration Luncheon

“My plan is to finish college, return to Buffalo, and become a business entrepreneur. My second love is urban development so I want to be deeply involved with Buffalo’s renaissance. In closing, thank you, BISON Fund. You have made the dreams of a little guy from Africa come true. I am a proud Buffalonian, and I am eternally grateful for the BISON Fund investing in me and my family when we needed it the most.” – Kenny N., 2011 BISON Graduate

Last year we welcomed over 1,000 BISON supporters and friends to the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center for our Annual Celebration Luncheon. Through their generosity, we surpassed our original goal and had a record-setting event raising over $300,000! Capitalizing on our matching program with the Children’s Scholarship Fund, we were able to grow the Luncheon proceeds by an additional $75,000, providing an additional 57 low-income children with scholarships. In total we provided scholarships to over 280 children from the Luncheon proceeds for the 2016-17 school year.

Please join us again in celebrating BISON and its impact on the WNY community at the 2017 Annual Celebration Luncheon on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.

Supporting BISON is a great investment – perhaps the best investment you can make in our community. Educated communities tend to be healthier, more productive, and more stable. Buffalo’s future is dependent on our area’s young people. It is because of this that we believe BISON’s mission is as important as ever. We are especially grateful to our supporters who understand the importance of our mission.

On behalf of the children and their families now assisted through BISON scholarships, thank you for your thoughtful consideration!
