Learn more about Celebration

***Due to the current recommendations of the CDC, Buffalo Prep has postponed the Celebration of Achievement event to take place on July 22, 2020.  The event was previously scheduled for May 7, 2020.  We realize this is an ever-changing situation and will continue to update our supporters.***

Buffalo Prep’s premier fundraiser, Celebration of Achievement presented by M&T Bank, will take place at Kleinhans Music Hall to honor Buffalo Prep’s graduating high school scholars as well as its steadfast and loyal supporters in the community.

Each year, over 500 guests attend this special event to cheer on Buffalo Prep’s high school seniors and learn about their exciting plans for the future.

At this year’s event, we are proud to honor Unifrax for their steadfast and generous support of Buffalo Prep and the Education Collaborative of Western New York for their impactful and transformative work on the topic of diversity, equity, and inclusion.  We hope you will join our honorees, chairs Luis and Jessica Rodriguez and Todd and Dina Benderson, and the entire Celebration of Achievement committee for this extraordinary night.
