BUFFALO, N.Y. – Imagine being 80 years old and getting the
chance to relive your high school senior prom – only this
time being selected king or queen.
For the first time, the University at Buffalo student chapter of
the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) will hold its
prom in the dining room/ballroom of Bassett Park Manor, an assisted
living facility located on 111 St. Gregory Ct, Williamsville, with
50 residents in attendance and taking part.
The evening’s festivities will take place on April 26 from
6 - 8 p.m.
There will be refreshments including appetizers and champagne,
socializing and dancing and a DJ playing mostly jazz recordings.
The evening will culminate with the selection of a prom king and
queen for both the students and the senior residents.
Wesley Kufel, UB intern at Omnicare Pharmacy of Western New York
and chapter president-elect, says that ACSP works mostly in the
field of geriatrics and long-term care facilities. The UB
student chapter received an ASPC grant of $870 to host the event at
“This is the first time such an event has happened at our
pharmacy school. We got the idea from the ASCP national conference
in National Harbor, Maryland, where other student chapters have
hosted such an event,” said Kufel. “We have also
fundraised for this by selling entertainment books and
anti-microbial guides for pharmacy students.”

phone at 315-657-6208.
