Regents Ball

Regents Ball

The 50th Annual Canisius College Golden Jubilee Regents Ball was held on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Buffalo.

A staggering $146,000 was raised for the Board of Regents Scholarship Fund, which provides financial assistance to promising young students, who would otherwise not be able to take advantage of the quality education that Canisius provides.

At this year’s event, The Board of Regents conferred the 2016 Regents Distinguished Citizen Award upon Clotilde Perez-Bode Dedecker, President and CEO of the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, for her man contributions to the Western New York Community.

Next year's Regents Ball will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2017.  For more information, please contact Cecelia Gotham, assistant director of stewardship and events, at (716) 888-8228 or at
