Join us on May 31 at 9 AM at the gardens of Blossom McBrier.

Erie Arts & Culture’s Leading Ladies, an affinity group passionate about arts in education, are looking for new members. We invite you to join us at our annual meeting on Memorial Day to find out more about our group. The meeting will be held outdoors at the gardens of Blossom McBrier and will include a Philharmonic quartet and a tour of Blossom’s renowned gardens.

The Coffee & Croissant gathering will be an informational session and start at 9 am. There will be various horticultural demonstrations during the day and the Erie Philharmonic will perform at noon. All are encouraged to bring a picnic to enjoy on the lawn. There is no cost and ample parking, but reservations for the Leading Ladies meeting are a must.

Please confirm your attendance by emailing Jade Mitchell at [email protected] no later than May 20, 2021.

Sharing a Passion for Arts in Education

Leading Ladies is a connected network of engaged women who all share the spirit of philanthropy. The women who comprise this group have generously made a three-year pledge at an annual level of either $100 (Pearl), $250 (Sapphire), $500 (Emerald), $1,000 (Ruby), or $2,500 (Diamond). Their gifts are an investment in childhood development by funding initiatives that provide Erie County youth with increased access to programs that foster culture and creativity.
