Location:
Laci's Tapas Bar, Hawley Avenue, Syracuse, New York

Reservations due:  October 16

Across from my desk is a sign carried proudly at the Women's March in Washington on January 21, 2017, it says "Sisters in Solidarity". One of the 110 women who accompanied me to the Women's March carried that sign along with 9 other signs we produced about women equality in business, sports, equality and life.

The March was one of the most peaceful, empowering events of my life. It showed that when women come together as "sisters in solidarity" we remind everyone women make up 52% of the USA population and we should have a stake in our future.

Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham has proudly supported women in all aspects of life and leadership for 22 years and will be co-hosting this special fundraiser with Vicki Brackens, a long time Syracuse community member, television host and entrepreneur. Proudly we come together as "sisters in solidarity" and invite others to join us to meet Syracuse Mayoral Candidate Juanita Perez Williams and to create new bonds with other Central New York women.

Thank you to Laci's Tapas Bar for providing the venue and bar and food for this occasion and to Amy Bartell, talented artist, who is providing special artwork to everyone who attends.Women TIES will provide some special gifts and membership gift certificates.

We are asking anyone else interested in more PR to donate to the event in the form of raffle items or giveaways for each attendee. Promotion will be given by Women TIES social media and marketing pages. All proceeds from the event tickets go towards Juanita's campaign.

For more information about the Juanita visit http://www.juanitaformayor.com.

Contact Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham at 315-708-4288 or info@womenties.com to donate any items or make a monetary or product donation to support the event. Please invite your female friends to join us and contribute.Thank you!

Remember it is about "sisters in solidarity" or as Women TIES likes saying - "Women Supporting Women in Business, Sports, Equality and Life." If women don't support women better, who will?

Girl Scout Gold Award Ceremony

LaurenPhillips Featuring:
Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham
Founder & President
Women TIES, LLC


Saturday, October 28, 2017
5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Location:
TBA

Cost: Free


Founder and President of Women TIES, LLC, Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham, is privileged to be the special guest speaker at the Girl Scouts Gold Award Ceremony honoring an amazing group of girl scouts who have reached the pinnacle of service in the organization.

Since 1916, Girl Scout's highest award "The Gold Award" has stood for excellence and leadership for girls everywhere. In October, a new class of girl leaders will join the ranks of generations of young women who have made a difference in their communities and beyond.

The Girl Scouts is a movement composed of more than 10 million girls worldwide who are using their talents to positively affect their communities with their talent, passion and abilities to reach people around the world.

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the most prestigious award that Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors can earn.

While some people still think of girl scouts as just cookies, badges, campfires, and friendship bracelets, Girl Scouts are so much more:

Girl Scouts are groundbreakers, big thinkers, and role models. Girl Scouts design robots, start garage bands, and improve their communities—and yes, they sell the best cookies on the planet.
When she's a Girl Scout, she's also a G.I.R.L.- (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™.

About the Presenter

If it wasn't for the women in her life when she was young providing her with confidence, leadership opportunities and support, Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham wouldn't have been the female leader she is today. Tracy gives back to her 5 sisters, 5 nieces, SUNY Oswego female business students and to as many young women as she can inspiring them to higher levels of service and belief in themselves. It is all about "women supporting women" which equals "women supporting girls."

The History of Woman Suffrage in New York

New York State was key to the national movement for women's suffrage. From Seneca Falls to New York City's Lower East Side, from Buffalo to Brooklyn, from Canton to Cattaraugus, people in New York State were leaders in the woman suffrage movement from 1848 until 1917 when suffrage was legalized in New York State and on to 1920 when the federal government passed the 19th amendment.

The Program will include a Welcome by Lynn "Spike" Herzig, President, New York Cultural Heritage Tourism Network.

A Call to Action – Unfinished Business and Building Toward 2020.

How do we honor our women's suffrage heritage and advance the cause, 2020 and beyond with speaker
Kathy Hochul, NYS Lieutenant Governor and Chair, NYS Women's Suffrage 100th Anniversary Commemoration Commission.

Painting the New York State Suffrage Landscape: Claiming 2020 - The history of the suffrage movement in New York State is a rich and diverse one. Panelists will briefly review this history and discuss the compelling reasons why New York - featuring our cultural heritage sites and activism - should claim ownership of the suffrage story ramping up to 2020, as well as potential leadership roles guiding the future of the women's movement.

Session B: Women's Rights are Human Rights
Moderated by the League of Women Voters of NYS. The long struggle to win the Equal Rights
Amendment – is it over? How long must women wait for equal pay? Is healthcare a right or a
privilege? Are we in control of our bodies or is our government in control?

Session C: Use your Voice: Building Toward 2020
Learn about the legislative successes and failures from women dedicated to public service, join
the discussion how to get involved, build momentum and move women's issues forward.

Networking Lunch

Session D: Sharing Ideas for Successful Suffrage Programs and Promoting Dialogue Around Unresolved Issues. An open forum for sharing programming ideas that have worked, and why. An opportunity to ask questions and determine viability for your own organization.

Session E: Collectively Making Changes for the Lives of All Women. How can we work collectively and collaboratively to advance women's issues on the state and federal levels?

Session F: Why Advocacy Matters! ad·vo·ca·cy: the act or process of supporting a cause or proposal: the act or process of advocating something. Championing a cause happens in many ways. What style fits you? How can you utilize it to make a difference?

Women TIES Rochester Luncheon: Best Selling Advice – Balancing Business & Life Better

Jennifer Johnson Featuring:
Jennifer Johnson
TV Journalist
13 WHAM


Wednesday, November 15, 2017
11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Location:
Midvale Country Club, Penfield, NY

Reservations due:  November 13

$30.00  (Member Price)
$35.00  (Non Member Price )


Women entrepreneurs and business women know better than anyone how difficult it can be to try to balance both personal and corporate life when something out of the ordinary occurs like a health issue, financial setback or devastating loss. While administering to the personal uncertainties in our life, women often struggle to keep the doors open, the books balanced and their spirits high.

At this special "thanksgiving" themed business luncheon, special guest Jennifer Johnson, Rochester 13WHAM ABC Journalist, will inspire women entrepreneurs with the bravery, boldness and balance they need to take care of their professional lives while unexpected personal responsibilities happen. Jennifer will share some of the strategies that have helped her balance work and personal life better while remaining grateful.

Sponsorship is still available by calling Women TIES at 315-708-4288.

The event is media sponsored by Jill Bates of Crystal Clear Consulting. Jill Bates, creative entrepreneur who had to learn for herself, often the hard way, what did and did not work while building her successful fashion design studio. Her mistakes, and what she has done to get back on track, are your gain. The mission of Crystal Clear Consulting is to share 30+ years of business experience with entrepreneurs who need to tap into my proven marketing skills, extensive knowledge, research know-how, and creative acumen.
Whether you are just getting your idea off the ground, or are poised to grow your business, lacking access to expert advice and being unclear about how to proceed will cost you time and money.

The second media sponsor is Lisa Powers of Boylan Code.

About the Presenter

Jennifer took on the challenge of early morning news in 2010. It was the one shift she had never worked. "It always looked fun, but who wants to get up that early?" Jennifer always thought. Once she became a mom she realized there's no time for sleep anyway so why not work a schedule that allows her more time with her kids?

She's been in the business since 2000 and covering news in Rochester since 2002. She anchored the 7 PM and 11 PM news at WHEC-TV before coming to 13WHAM ABC. She's traveled from Rochester to find the local angle on some big stories including spending 3 weeks along the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina.

The story she became known for was when her beautiful daughter Grace was born in the fall of 2011, underwent several surgeries, spent time on a heart-lung bypass machine and went home after 72 days in the NICU. Grace was brave, fearless and always happy despite her challenges. Through TV coverage, her story inspired countless people to support Golisano Children's Hospital - a place Vinnie and Jennifer credit for saving their daughter again and again. But it wasn't meant to be. Grace passed away in February of 2013 at the age of 16 months after complications from her 5th surgery.

The community's love for Grace continues as people pledge support for the Golisano Children's Hospital.Many people have called Jennifer the face of the children's hospital. She's now made Rochester her home and continues to volunteer. Priority number one for Jennifer is family time and raising her two children. She is also a mom to a dog named Bo (a Vizsla whose full name is Bo Sox), loves to hunt for a bargain and is a work-in-progress in the kitchen.
