Patri Acevedo

Speaker at Celebrate Our Legacy, 2016 Women's Conference.

Buffalo Gals proudly presents our sixth of nine speakers for Celebrate Our Legacy, the 2016 International Women's Day Conference at Rushmore Plaza Holiday Inn on March 4 -5, 2016.
Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Patri resided in New York, Florida and Texas before calling the Black Hills “home.” Her varied background enriches the design process and enhances her ability to partner with clients, collaborators and consultants. She holds a BS in Environmental Design from he Universidad de Puerto Rico in San Juan, PR and a Master of Architecture from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. Patri is [quite possibly the only Puerto Rican] licensed to practice architecture in the states of South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Montana and Wyoming. Her love of the region has motivated her to serve as a President of the board of directors for Black Hills Area Habitat for Humanity and as Secretary/Treasurer of the South Dakota chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

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
