Join Syracuse University for a benefit concert featuring award-winning singer and stage, television and film actress Vanessa Williams ’85. Proceeds will benefit the Our Time Has Come Vanessa Williams Scholarship supporting black and Latino students in the College of Visual and Performing Arts.

We are thrilled to have Ms. Williams perform for our inaugural OTHC Benefit Concert, which raises money for the Vanessa Williams Scholarship Fund. This kind of fundraiser is a great way to showcase the world class talent that comes out of Syracuse University, to engage our amazing alumni and to support students of color with an unmet financial need. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Assistant Vice President Rachel Vassel ’91
