Saturday, November 16, 2019

The Buffalo History Museum
1 Museum Ct, Buffalo, NY 14216, USA

On November 16, 2019, the League of Women Voters of NYS will be 100 years old and the State League's Education Foundation is hosting our 100th Anniversary Celebration at The Buffalo History Museum!

At the celebration, we are thrilled to be honoring:

  • Kathleen Hochul, Lt. Governor of New York State and her husband, William Hochul, Jr., Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary to Delaware North Companies,
  • Dr. Katherine Conway-Turner, President, SUNY Buffalo State,
  • Alice Jacobs, President, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, and
  • Ariel Palitz, Senior Executive Director, Office of Nightlife for New York City

The Buffalo History Museum is a generous co-sponsor of our event and features, through autumn of 2020, the special exhibit Emblem of Equality: Woman Suffrage in Western New York which covers stories from local artist Evelyn Rumsey Cary’s suffrage poster effects on suffrage; the "Buffalo Six" (the Western New York women who were imprisoned for picketing the White House), and more.

We invite you to join us as we celebrate our centennial and recognize influential leaders in our communities.

Beer, Wine, Soft Drinks and Hors d’Oeuvres will be served.

Click through to register online, or call the NY State League office at 518-465-4162. Buy your tickets by November 1, 2019!
