Transforming Lives: Join the Celebration

Posted: September 26, 2012

On Friday, September 28, join the Buffalo State community for an exciting celebration heralding the beginning of Transforming Lives: A Campaign for Buffalo State from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center at Rockwell Hall. 

Buffalo State President Aaron Podolefsky and Transforming Lives Co-chairs James Brandys, ’71, ’73, and Linda A. Dobmeier, ’71, will explain the importance of the most ambitious fundraising initiative in Buffalo State’s history and what it means to current and future students.

Over the next three years, Buffalo State is seeking to raise $20 million in philanthropic support from alumni, friends, businesses, and foundations. These donations will assist Buffalo State in myriad ways—from creating student scholarships to purchasing specialized learning equipment to establishing endowed chairs and professorships.

During the celebration, hear testimonials from students whose lives have been transformed at Buffalo State. Hear from Buffalo State alumni and friends who believe in upholding the university’s mission. See a video montage capturing the essence of how lives are transformed because of Buffalo State.  

Following the ceremony, everyone is invited to a party on the front lawn of Rockwell Hall that will feature great music, cocktails, and hors d’oeuvres. This is a celebration not to be missed.
