25th Anniversary Celebration

September 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Since 1997, Capital Region Sponsor-A-Scholar has strived to improve lives by giving young people access to education, support, and resources that may be otherwise unavailable. Through the support of members of our local communities, our organization has helped more than 300 students in the Capital Region achieve their goal of a college education – through academic guidance, mentoring, and financial support. None of which is possible without the commitment of our scholars, sponsors, donors, and mentors.

Join us on September 15, 2022, to celebrate the accomplishments of all the people who have made our organization’s mission a reality and honor the founders – Charlie Buchanan and the late Bill Barnett.

As we look ahead to new possibilities and opportunities for our Scholars, there is no better way to show your support and honor the legacy Mr. Buchanan and Mr. Barnet began than by attending the celebration!
