If Walls Could Talk:

The History of a Community Cornerstone

In 1917, the University Club of Syracuse opened the doors of its Georgian-style headquarters on East Fayette Street, which for more than 60 years served as a private society clubhouse. That same year saw many notable civilian service efforts take root in the surrounding community. Now, as the CNY Philanthropy Center, this repurposed landmark has blossomed into a space for collaboration toward a common goal – to help Central New York and its residents succeed and thrive.

We invite you to join us in celebrating the 100-year birthday of our beloved home. Attendees will enjoy a program from the Onondaga Historical Association that will give voice to the goings-on of days gone by. OHA’s Gregg Tripoli will highlight the building’s architectural significance and impact, as well as the remarkable history that took shape within and beyond its walls.

Thursday, October 5, 2017, 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Refreshments and hors d’oeuvres provided. Presentation at 5:45 p.m.
