Women Creating a Legacy

Tuesday, June 11, 2024

5 to 8 p.m.

That’s the date of the seventh annual Women Creating a Legacy at the History Center.

The History Center invites you to make history with us by supporting the seventh annual Women Creating a Legacy event.

This event is a cocktail party fundraiser for women only. Enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinks while touring Erie’s newest museum.

Join us from 5pm-8pm at the Watson-Curtze Mansion, 356 West 6th Street. Enjoy the party, tour the three exhibit buildings, and see the 11 new professionally designed exhibits.

Committee members include Lauren Bauer, Emily Fessler, Erin Fessler, Susan Kanonczyk,  Barb Lechner, Abby Lechner, Leah Murphy,  Lisa NeCastro,  and Dana Zaphiris  

We have a unique opportunity this year for Women Creating A Legacy guests.

The History Center is featuring an exhibit on the works of Eugene Iverd. This local painter and Erie school teacher modeled his paintings after the style of Norman Rockwell and featured Erie children in his works.

With an exhibit of his works, students on field trips to the History Center can come to appreciate Iverd’s artistry, realize his place in history, and perhaps consider becoming an artist as a career choice.  


Invitations will be mailed in May. If you’d like to receive an invitation or have any questions, please contact us at 814-454-1813 x 34 or gcicchetti@eriehistory.org.

Women under the age of 40 will pay their age. For example, if you are 30 years old, your price will be $30.For all other women, tickets are $100/each.

Thank you for your consideration and for making history with us!
