Fredonia College Foundation Events
Due to the current health crisis, the Black Tie and Bourbon Experience is postponed until further notice.
Fredonia College Foundation will host an extraordinary event - the Black Tie and Bourbon Experience on Saturday, June 6, 2020. We will gather for an unforgettable evening of finely crafted bourbon for tasting along with cocktails, fine cuisine, musical entertainment and a silent auction of unique packaged and individual items to raise funds for priority needs of the Nurturing Innovation Campaign for Fredonia.
This is an exciting time for Fredonia. We are currently in the university's largest campaign to date, and are well on the way toward exceeding our goal of $20 million to support scholarships, experiential learning for students, innovation in teaching and learning, interactive learning spaces, and other priority needs of the university.
You can help Fredonia meet the priority needs of the Nuturing Innovation Campaign and continue to provide a unique educational experience for students and assist with supporting programming that is enjoyed by students, alumni, and the local and regional community.
Please join us by attending or sponsoring this exciting Black Tie and Bourbon Experience.
We ask that you consider sponsoring our event and becoming an important part of Fredonia's Nurturing Innovation Campaign. The Black Tie and Bourbon Experience is a great opportunity to highlight your business and reach potential new customers!

With your generosity, we can meet the priority needs of the Nuturing Innovation Campaign and continue to provide an outstanding educational experience for Fredonia students. A stronger Fredonia means a stronger local economy.
