The Land Conservancy is excited to announce its 25th Anniversary Gala to be held on Wednesday, September 21 in the Golden Ballroom at Statler City in Buffalo. We would love for you to join us!

The Gala will feature live gypsy jazz music by The Hot Club of Buffalo, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, dessert, awards, and an exciting live auction presented by Cash Cunningham.

Celebrity emcee and long-time Land Conservancy member, Steve Tasker, will lead the way as we celebrate 25 years of saving land in our region.

At the event we will be honoring Kathy Lasher, Gerry Rising, and Joanne Schlegel for their incredible contributions over the years. The live auction will feature exciting prizes including getaways to New Zealand, Niagara-on-the-Lake, East Aurora, and a secluded Lake Erie Beachfront property; a day-long fishing charter; local art; a cruise on the lower Niagara River; and much more.

Tickets are $160 per person or $220 for patrons who will be recognized in the program. You may also purchase a full table for 10 for $1,440 or 12 for $1,760. Contact the Land Conservancy at (716) 687-1225 or info@wnylc.org to make reservations.
