The Western New York Land Conservancy will host its annual gala from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21 in the Golden Ballroom at Statler City, 107 Delaware Ave., Buffalo

The Silver Anniversary Gala will celebrate 25 years of conserving our region’s special places.

The gala will be led by Steve Tasker, celebrity emcee and long-time Land Conservancy member, and will feature live gypsy jazz music by The Hot Club of Buffalo, as well as an exciting live auction presented by Cash Cunningham.

The live auction will feature sensational prizes including getaways to New Zealand, Niagara-on-the-Lake, East Aurora, and a secluded Lake Erie Beachfront property; a day-long fishing charter; a cruise on the lower Niagara River; local art, and more.

Kathy Lasher, Gerry Rising and Joanne Schlegel will be honored for their contributions over the years.

Tickets to attend the gala are $160 or $220 for patrons who will be recognized in the printed program. Full tables of ten and twelve are available at discounted rates.

Contact the Land Conservancy at (716) 687-1225 or to make reservations for the gala. Attendees must RSVP by Sept. 9.

The regional land trust and its thousands of supporters have saved more than 6,000 acres of forests, wetlands, meadows, and farms in the eight counties of Western New York since 1991. These places include, among many others, the Stella Niagara Preserve in Lewiston, the Niagara Escarpment Preserve in Lockport, the Kenneglenn Scenic and Nature Preserve in Wales, and the Mill Road Scenic Overlook in Aurora, and farmland throughout the region. These places are protected forever because of Land Conservancy and the efforts of its members.

Over the next five years, the Land Conservancy will focus their work in Erie and Niagara Counties.
