The Auto Show Charity Preview Gala is held annually on the eve of the opening of the Buffalo Auto Show itself. The Gala not only affords guests the opportunity to view all the beautiful new vehicles that are available to the general public all week during the show, but it offers so much more. The Preview Gala is a night designed for local dignitaries, television and radio personalities and other media personnel, industry experts, owners and key personnel from local new car franchise dealerships. It is an upscale evening including valet parking, a coatcheck at the door, live entertainment, libations, gourmet food stations, a trip give-away, and much more. Most importantly, all proceeds of this event go to local charitable organizations via the NFADA Charitable Foundation.
