The 48th Annual Canisius College Regents Scholarship Ball will be held Saturday, May 3 at the Hyatt Regency Buffalo. Cocktails begin at 6:00 p.m. followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m. The evening’s activities feature an open bar, a raffle for a variety of valuable prizes and dancing to Party of Nine, Western New York’s premier live-music group. This year’s event will also feature a live auction of three exciting prize packages courtesy of the Buffalo Bills and New Era Cap Co.

This event is the primary fundraiser for the Board of Regents Scholarship Fund, which distributes more than $70,000 annually in scholarships to deserving students.

The Regents Ball also provides an opportunity to pay tribute to individuals who have been outstanding contributors to the community. The Board of Regents is pleased to announce that Russ Brandon, president and CEO of the Buffalo Bills, will be honored with the 2014 Distinguished Citizen Achievement Award.
