2019 Land Conservancy Gala
The Land Conservancy and our main sponsor, West Herr Automotive Group, invite you to join us at our 5th Annual Gala on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM.
The gala will take place in the elegant Grand Ballroom at Templeton Landing, overlooking Buffalo’s vibrant waterfront.
This year’s Gala will be a celebration of the incredible accomplishments of the Land Conservancy and its members. The Gala will include a reception with music, hors d’oeuvres, and an open bar with beer, wine, and cocktails. The reception will be followed by a fabulous dinner and dessert.
After dinner, we will honor several exceptional Land Conservancy supporters, including: Dr. Franklin and Linda Meyer as Guests of Honor; Judy Weidemann as the Volunteer of the Year; and the founders and executive director of Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper as the Henry J. Kreher Conservation Awardees.
Our 2019 Gala will also feature an exciting live auction. Check back soon for details about the tempting prizes…
