First Annual Heart of Gold Gala

The UB Association of Women Surgeons and The UB Department of Surgery will be hosting our First Annual Heart of Gold Gala.

As part of an initiative to give back to the community we serve we have organized this annual event to raise funds for local charities. This year all proceeds will benefit The Haven House of Buffalo. This is a wonderful local organization that helps victims of domestic violence with leaving their situation, creating a new life, and the healing process. They provide plans, counseling, therapy, and temporary housing for victims and their families. This group helps so many men, women, and children in Buffalo every year. They really are a great example of an organization that helps to better this city and strengthen the community. We pride ourselves on being the City of Good Neighbors, and they truly embody that motto.

Fundraising will take part online over the next six weeks and will culminate in a black tie affair at the lovely Lafayette Hotel. This evening will include socializing with a diverse group of Buffalo professionals, food, open bar, live music, and dance performances. As part of the event we will also be hosting a silent auction. We are asking donors to contribute either a luxury item that can be auctioned on the evening of the Gala or alcoholic beverages to enhance the merriment of the evening. We will happily accept fiscal donations in lieu of an auction item. All donors will be recognized for their contributions. All charitable donations are tax deductible. Above all we would love to see you and your friends at the event! ​

Tickets and the opportunity to donate will be available online this Friday!
