The Holidays are in full effect, and with the colder weather comes time for us to spend time with the family and prepare for the Christmas shopping season. The transition from autumn to winter also brings the Gala and Holiday Party Season along with it.

Gala season is when all of the different organization groups throw events to raise money for their causes, and of course, holiday parties are just about everywhere you turn.

Organizations like the For Our Daughters Foundation, Black Achievers, Housing Opportunities Made Equal, Catholic Health Systems, Shea's Buffalo, Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens, and the Buffalo Zoo have all had their galas in recent months, along with community groups like the YMCA and Buffalo Urban League holding holiday parties for the communities they serve.

One of many groups in Western New York that have been doing a ton of work to uplift those in the community is hosting a holiday celebration, and you and all your friends are invited.
