Celebrate the First of Its Kind in the Nation Monument to honor all African American Veteran heroes! The monument will recognize the contributions of African American veterans from the five branches of the military who served during war and in peace times!
The African American Veterans Monument Gala is a black-tie affair and will be held at Templeton Landing which showcases the best waterfront view in Buffalo, New York! This amazing evening demonstrating excellence, honor, and sacrifice will celebrate our African American Veteran Heroes who have served this country since the Revolutionary War. This monumental event will begin with a cocktail reception, followed by an intimate dinner and program. After the keynote speaker’s presentation, the festivities will continue with dancing to the music of Taylor Made Jazz. Proceeds from the Gala will support updating, programming, and ongoing expenses of the Monument. We hope to see you there!
