GAMBIT Goes Virtual

By CHS Staff


GAMBIT is moving online for 2021 and the school is planning what should be an amazing virtual event.

The original plan as of last summer was to host GAMBIT XLVI, the school's gala dinner auction and primary fundraiser, as an in-person event on March 20, 2021. But, as it has become more evident that the pandemic is unlikely to be over by then, the school has made the decision to shift to a virtual event on the same date — March 20, 2021. Those who have confirmed 2020 GAMBIT reservations will have their reservations honored for the 2021 virtual event. For those who don’t have reservations, please stay tuned as more details are coming soon on how to get tickets. Bonus: The Canisius GAMBIT office is currently putting together a fabulous GAMBIT gala box for all ticket holders.

There are also additional ways for people to participate and support the mission of Canisius High School now that the event is virtual. Mark your calendars for the following pre-GAMBIT events:
