Headway of WNY, Inc.

A support and advocacy agency
for individuals with brain injuries,
disabilities and seniors.

Headway of WNY, an affiliate of People Inc., hosted “The Roaring Twenties,” on Thursday, May 16! The special event was held at The Atrium @ Rich’s in Buffalo. It was a lively night of comradery and fun and many guests arrived dressed as flappers, gangsters and silent screen stars! 

This 1920s-themed event featured live jazz music with the Bobby Militello Quartet, basket raffle, silent auction, food stations, two hour open bar, costume contest and more!
