A Blue & Gold Gala promises to be the most special night of the most special year in the storied history of Canisius College. We will rejoice in and celebrate the college’s rich history of commitment to Western New York through unwavering standards of academic excellence that were established by a small group of German Jesuits in 1870 and continue to this day.

Canisius 150: A Blue & Gold Gala, the climax of our yearlong sesquicentennial celebration, is taking a different spin from our traditional Regents Ball. Guests will be dazzled and delighted, star-stuck and entertained with our special celebrity headliner performance, who will be announced on Friday, January 31, 2020. It will be a night never forgotten and one not to be missed!

Proceeds from the Gala will support Canisius Fund 150, the college’s sesquicentennial fundraising campaign that is addressing the greatest needs of the college and our students. Your support will fund academic program development, capital projects, and student scholarships.
