2018 Annual Celebration Luncheon

For 23 years, members of our community like you, have allowed BISON to assist over 29,500 low-income children attend schools of their choice via tuition assistance.  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.



12 PM – 1:15 PM

(Doors open at 11:30 am)

Last year we welcomed over 1,000 BISON supporters and friends to the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center for our Annual Celebration Luncheon. Through community generosity, we surpassed our original goal and had a record-setting year raising $325,000! Capitalizing on our matching program with the Children’s Scholarship Fund, we are able to grow the Luncheon proceeds by an additional $81,000, allowing us to provide scholarships to over 300 children.

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