The 2020 Buckeye Gala

Join us for the 2020 Buckeye Gala

Join us on March 6th, 2020 as we bring back our annual Buckeye Gala presented by the Ohio State University Alumni Club of Chicago!

The Buckeye Gala is the premier OSU alumni event hosted by the OSUACC! This fantastic event brings together alumni and friends for an evening of food, philanthropy and fun.

The Cause

Proceeds from the event support the OSUACC’s Scholarship Fund for incoming freshmen to The Ohio State University. These scholarships provide qualified students in the Chicagoland area with merit-based scholarships to Ohio State and an opportunity to participate throughout the school year in a program that helps them build professional and leadership skills, introduces them to Ohio State Alumni working in their field, and presents the opportunity to give back to their community through service projects. In 2019, we awarded $7,000 in scholarships to five deserving, incoming freshmen from the Chicagoland area.

As a fundraiser for our scholarship fund, the Buckeye Gala is a wonderful chance to give back the gift that many of us received from Ohio State – a world class education.

The Details

The OSUACC is pleased to bring together Ohio State alumni and their families and friends of the University to celebrate the strength of the Buckeye community in Chicago. We are pleased to invite you to this special event featuring:
