SUNY Buffalo State’s 16th annual Foundation Scholarship Gala will be held on Saturday at the Statler, 107 Delaware Ave.

Festivities begin at 6 p.m., followed by dinner, dancing and a live auction starting at 7.

Proceeds from the gala provide scholarships to students enrolled in Buffalo State’s prestigious All College Honors Program, which has helped raise more than $3 million in scholarships for honors students since the fundraiser began in 1998.

This year’s event also will mark the All College Honors program officially being named the Muriel A. Howard Honors Program to honor the former Buffalo State president’s more than 13 years of leadership at the college.

Tickets are $200 per person. For more information, contact Kathryn Neeson at (716) 878-4895.
