Over the past decade, Medaille’s Founders Day Celebrations and MAVstravaganzas have raised thousands of dollars annually for student scholarships.
 
As Medaille University looks towards the future, we are proud to announce the return of our annual in-person Founders Day Dinner. This year’s event will take place at the Buffalo Transportation Pierce-Arrow Museum. Founded by Mary Ann and Jim Sandoro and located in the heart of downtown Buffalo, the Museum showcases their personal collection. It offers a unique look at Buffalo’s transportation history featuring Pierce-Arrow and Thomas Flyer cars from 1903 to the 1960s muscle cars. The Museum is also home to a replica full-scale Filling Station by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Money raised through Founders Day sponsorships will support the breadth of the Medaille student experience — such as student scholarships, improving athletic experiences, and paying and retaining outstanding faculty who educate and develop our students.
