The 2016 event held on June 9 at the Lexus Club welcomed 200 guests and provided for over 30 scholarships thanks to the generosity of our corporate and individual partners. The memorable evening featured Buffalo Sabres legend Danny Gare as a special guest, WBBZ’s John DiSciullo as emcee and auctioneer, and live music from the George Caldwell/Bobby Militello Duo. In addition, Charles E. Moran, Jr. was honored as the fifth member of the College’s Heritage Council.
