|MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dear Bishop Fallon HS/Holy Angels Collegiate Institute Alumni,
2017 was quite a year for the BFHS/HACI Alumni Association. Our 14th annual golf tournament in June had a record breaking year in money raised. To date, our contributions to Catholic education in Western New York and the BISON Scholarship Fund are over $112,000 (quite an accomplishment for a school that closed in 1975)!
The All-years’ reunion in August continued to be very well attended, especially the 1957, 1962 and 1967 classes who celebrated their milestone reunions. Our annual Hall of Fame Dinner in October was most successful and honored a truly outstanding Class of Inductees.
Without the hard work and dedication of all the members of our Alumni Board and all our loyal alumni, our success would not be achieved. By continuing to support these events, the Oblate tradition perseveres.
Manny Aja ‘75
President, BFHS/HACI Alumni Association
HELP US SUPPORT CATHOLIC EDUCATION
The Alumni Association’s Catholic Education/Tuition Assistance program continues to need your assistance. Several schools have closed over the years and many of those still operating are in peril and in need of your continued support.
The Alumni Association has strongly supported Catholic Education in Western New York since 2001. Our Alumni Association has donated over $112,000.00 in support of Catholic Education in the form of tuition assistance and/or providing needed equipment.
In 2017, we raised $12,750.00 from our three events. Our association with the BISON Scholarship Fund allows us to present 5 scholarships of $1350.00 to each to the following schools: Catholic Academy of West Buffalo, Our Lady of Black Rock School, St. Joseph’s University School, Our Lady of Victory School, and St. Amelia’s School. In addition, direct financial assistance will be provided to: Cardinal O’Hara High School, Holy Angels Church, Nativity Miguel Middle School, St. Mary’s High School, St. Mary’s School of Swormville, and Chesterton Academy of Buffalo.
Remember, if you are unable to attend any event in 2018, a tax deductible donation may be made to help support Catholic Education.
Please send your checks to:
BFHS/HACI Alumni Association, P.O. Box 25, Williamsville, NY 14231.
Thank you for your continued support of Catholic Education.
