UB's Student Association is holding its annual Winter Gala at the Buffalo Convention Center on Saturday from 6 p.m. to midnight.
The Winter Gala started in 1991 as a small event called the SA Christmas Party, and it has built up to an occasion that has around 800 to 1,000 people in attendance each year. The revenue gained from the event goes back into the SA's budget for other creative events later in the year.
The gala will feature a 17-piece swing band, dinner, and an open bar for those over the age of 21. Additionally, UB's Jam Club will be playing in the Convention Center's foyer during the event.
Tickets are on sale at the SBI Ticket Office for $30. SA will also offer free transportation to and from the event, with pick-ups and drop-offs at Hadley Village, South Lake, Flint Loop, Ellicott, Governors, South Campus, and the Villas. Students can sign up for a bus in 350 Student Union.
