Women's group to honor Peoples with award
A local women's group will hold a luncheon at noon Friday to honor Assemblywoman Crystal D. Peoples, D-Buffalo, at Shanghai Red's Restaurant, 2 Templeton Terrace.
The Gathering group will present its first Women's Community Builder's Award to Peoples in celebration of Women's History Month.
The Gathering, a group of seven women, was established in 1996 to support and counsel other local women as they advance in their careers. The group's members have served as mentors to young women and undertaken community projects that benefit women and children.
Channel 2 News Reporter Claudine Ewing is mistress of ceremonies and will introduce participants to Deputy Mayor Angela Joyner. Tickets are $40.
