There are few women who have had a more profound influence on Alexandria than our beloved Patsy Ticer. As the first female Mayor of Alexandria and as a Virginia State Senator, Patsy dedicated her life to those less fortunate; to improving the quality of education, especially for our youngest learners; and to making our community a better place to live and work. The Alexandria Commission for Women and the Friends of the Alexandria Commission for Women are very honored to be recognizing Patsy and her many contributions at a very special Tribute to Patsy Ticer. We hope you will be part of it.
The event, which will include a cocktail reception and program highlighting her life, will be held on Monday, March 19, 2018 at the George Washington Masonic National Memorial, located at 101 Callahan Dr., Alexandria, VA.
Tickets are $50 and again, you can purchase them here.

We the Women Exhibition

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, the National Archives will launch a nationwide initiative and major exhibition that explores the generations-long fight for universal woman suffrage. Our fundraising event – We the Women – will serve as a launching point for this bold initiative and help provide financial support for the National Archives. The Exhibition will include:
  • Speakeasies, specialty cocktails and tasting stations from women-owned and led businesses including Drink Company, Columbia Room, Denizens Brewing Company, Chaia, Catoctin Creek Distilling Company, Gray Wolf Craft Distillery, Lyon Distilling Company, and Republic Restoratives
  • Light hors d’oeurves
  • Historic suffragist documents on view
  • Live jazz and swing music
  • Dance lessons including the “Charleston” by GottaSwing
  • Make your own suffragist-themed buttons and sashes
  • Chat with Archives curators and historians
  • After-hours access to museum exhibits
  • Themed photo booth
  • Cocktail attire, suffragist white — or come in 1920’s era theme (suffragist, Gatsby, etc.). There will be stations and props to help you get in character.
