WNY Women’s Foundation Presents What She’s Made Of

WNY Women’s Foundation presents the 9th Annual What She’s Made Of Celebration featuring Teresa C. Younger, activist and advocate for women’s justice on May 22

Teresa C. Younger, the current CEO and President of Ms. Foundation for Women, will be the keynote speaker on May 22 for “What She’s Made Of,” an annual fundraising event for the WNY Women’s Foundation.

Proceeds from the event will benefit programs that help women and girls achieve success through pursuing their education and gaining economic independence. This year’s theme is “Everything is Possible.”

Younger works tirelessly on behalf of women and their economic and social place, always envisioning a present and future where Everything is Possible. Her work with the Ms. Foundation focuses on marginalized women and advocates national and statewide policy change to address these barriers to achievement. Under Younger’s leadership, the Ms. Foundation has joined other leading women’s organizations, including the WNY Women’s Foundation, at the White House to announce a $100 million funding commitment to create pathways to economic opportunity for low-income women and girls.

A champion for women or all ages, Younger is an accomplished leader and advocate with over 20 years of experience. She helps build strong partnerships amongst diverse communities and constituencies, and approaches problem-solving with creativity and innovation in addressing organizational challenges.

What She’s Made Of takes place at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery on Monday, May 22nd at 5:30 pm, and will feature exquisite cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and scrumptious dessert after-party, catered by Delaware North Companies. Co-chairs of the event are WNY Women’s Foundation board members and City of Buffalo residents Nicole Nobel and Rebecca Collins. The presenting sponsor is M&T Bank.

Individual tickets for this signature networking event are available for $150 per person, and a limited number of VIP tickets are also available. For additional information, please visit www.wnywomensfoundation.org.
