Trocaire College is a sponsor of this year’s event, which is “an afternoon of fashion, food and friends, benefiting the women and girls in our community.” On Nov. 2, attendees will enjoy lunch, a runway show featuring pieces from some of Buffalo’s local, women-owned boutiques and a silent auction featuring unique items and experiences.
The mission of WNY Women’s Foundation is “to create a culture of possibility so each woman and girl can live, grow and lead to her fullest potential. We believe that when women and girls are secure, entire communities are stronger.”
Trocaire Nursing students Michelle Reardon, Nora Durham and Safra Bacchus have signed on to participate in the runway show, which this year bears the theme “What’s YOUR Superpower?” Check out Michelle’s and Nora’s answers below!
My Superpower: Persistence and drive
Bio: I am a single mother who works hard to support my son Hunter and advance my education so I am able to continue to support him. I work full time in the day and I am a fourth semester Nursing student at Trocaire College who is set to graduate this December. At school I am also the Student Association President and the Student Nursing Association Secretary.
My Superpower: Fun-loving. I try to always bring some sort of positive energy to the table, and make light of certain situations. It’s very uplifting to know that as a future nurse I have the potential to make a difference in the lives of others, and I couldn’t see myself doing anything else.
Bio: I am an aspiring nurse who plans on graduating from Trocaire College with my Nursing degree in December 2018. While attending Trocaire I have done work study through the Admissions office, and I am proud to say that I am also currently co-president of the Student Nursing Association. I really enjoy representing my school, and I am honored for every opportunity I can to do so. While going to school part-time, I also work as a nursing assistant at St. Joseph Campus, and do home care for a sweet and caring elderly woman.
