Be A Part of Nichols Night

& Kept Up To Date On Details

Nichols Night 2024

We are excited to announce that the annual Nichols Auction will take place on Saturday, May 4, 2024, chaired this year by current families:

Nicholas '91 & Nicole Tzetzo P'28 and Roger & Karen Walcott P'25, '27

Over the last few years, we have explored various venues in and around Buffalo, but ultimately chose to bring the Auction back home to our Amherst St. campus and host it in our newest space, The Class of 1961 Student Commons.



As the School's major fundraising event, all proceeds - 100% of donations - benefit our students and their Nichols experience.

As we plan for this years event, we are grateful to our team of volunteers who are helping us make the event the best one yet, our Nichols Night Committee:

Jen Balbach P'17, '19, '24
Dina Benderson P'25, '29
Claudia Buttenhoff P'28
Angela Campagna P'30
Jen Coppola P'27, '30
Danielle Gasser P'28
Gunjeet Gurtoo P'27
Jessica Hapeman '95 P'28, '28
Dora Iskalo P'23, '27
