Each year, the SUNY Adirondack Foundation holds events to raise funds for scholarships and to raise awareness of its mission.


The Howl Trivia Night:  We had a wonderful crowd who competed in a fun night of trivia on Friday, March 4, 2016 at the Great Escape Lodge. The community came together to raise over $6,600 for student scholarships at SUNY Adirondack.  This annual event lets our friends "show off their smarts", have a great time and win wonderful prizes.


The Lyman A. Beeman, Jr. Golf Tournament: Soon to be in its 28th year, the golf tournament will take place Friday, June 16, 2017 on one of our region’s most beautiful golf courses - Hiland Golf Club.  A perfect spring outing includes golf with cart, lunch, cocktail reception, tournament prizes, raffles and contests throughout the day.   The Lyman A. Beeman, Jr. Golf Tournament provides a wonderful way to help the college, make professional contacts and honor a dear friend of the Foundation.


Adirondack Wine and Food Festival:  As a sponsoring partner for this fantastic annual event, the Foundation provides volunteers and our Culinary Arts program performs cooking demonstrations and wine pairings throughout both days.  A portion of all ticket and tee-shirt sales benefit the SUNY Adirondack Foundation Scholarship Program.  Gather your favorite friends and have a great time for a great cause! Check out the video here. The next festival takes place June 24 and 25, 2017.


Fall Scholarship Reception: is a wonderful event which offers the opportunity to bring our scholarship sponsors together with their scholarship recipients.  We honor the generosity of our sponsors and the hard work of our students.
