The March 4th International Women’s Day Celebration and Conference, hosted by the Buffalo Gals is a launch pad to initiate and invigorate a community conversation and collaboration with multiple community organizations, corporations, private businesses and dedicated individuals. Participants in this ground-breaking event will be inspired by a slate of speakers, and will be called upon to act as a force for change in our community, tackling the issues identified in breakout sessions. Your generous support in this inaugural event is crucial to build the foundation of this on-going mission of community involvement led by women with guts, grit and grace.

Why March 4th – March 4th is the only verb “march forth” in the calendar. We believe it is time for collaboration and want to make this date an action date!

As we kick off this new year —we are calling on our community to champion women. We are dedicating that mission as one of a top priority in 2016!

Celebrate Our Legacy is a community collaboration with women’s organizations and initiatives through the region. The Conference will include a ceremony honoring women veterans, Girl Scouts Women of Distinction Award presentation, 9 Dynamic speakers addressing our past, present and future, live entertainment by the renowned internationally acclaimed performer Orgena Rose, lunch, dinner and an evening concert, and a travel and accommodation to support women traveling from rural areas.

When you get 400 women in a room to connect, to share, to be inspired - something magical happens. This is an event you do NOT want to miss!

We hope we can count on you to choose to champion women in 2016
