The February 23rd event has been moved to March 29th so we can obtain a larger crowd for our speaker, sponsor and guests. We also added a $750 PR Package for one lucky winner. Join us on March 29th!

Event Description: Right now the news headlines are keeping everyone riveted to television, radio, social media and the Internet. The news topics drive the media to find sources for stories to share 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. When the news isn't filled with major national or international news, the newspapers, radio and online media are looking for interesting entrepreneurs and community members with interesting stories to feature. You could be one of them in 2017 gaining valuable airtime for yourself, company or product.

At the Women TIES Greater Albany & Saratoga Luncheon "Grabbing the Headlines in 2017" listen to recent examples of how two women entrepreneurs secured major press coverage by simply reaching out to the media and promoting their activities through communication methods and press releases. Mary Frances Millet, local Albany artist, will share how her new creative coloring book project landed her extensive local media attention which increased exposure and sales. Tracy Higginbotham, Founder of Women TIES, will discuss how being involved with the Woman's March on Washington landed her an interview on ESPNW, three Syracuse television stations and four publications. Walk away from this program empowered to share your own personal creative stories with the media in 2017 to gain your own headlines.

This event is being co-sponsored by the Women's Business Center of New York State (www.nywbc.org). Learn about their extensive services and programs on their website or at our event.

There are two valuable event marketing sponsorship opportunities available for this event. If you are interested in marketing your company before and at the event, contact Women TIES 315-708-4288.

About the Presenter

Born and raised in Schenectady, Mary Frances Millet has been an artist since as far back as she can remember. Her parents placed her in art lessons from the age of 8 to 16. She credits their support and encouragement in fostering her creativity. They allowed her to paint murals within the house and garage.

"Given such artistic license makes a huge impact on one. It instilled in me a fearlessness to try new mediums and subjects. I've tried a lot of different things but when I was in art school I was introduced to watercolor and it was love at first sight. I went on to train under Karen Rosasco and a few other artists.

From there I ventured into silk painting and met with great success." Her silk scarves and paintings are in the gallery of the Northumbrian Cottage in Burnt Hills. She designed the History of Schenectady coloring book in 2016 and has sold over 250 copies.

Millet graduated from UAlbany with a degree in Sociology, Maria College with a degree in occupational therapy and the Professional Institute of Commercial Art in Maryland. She has taught at many places in the Capital District and continues to teach silk painting at Arlene's Artist Materials with classes coming up in 2017 at Create studio in Schenectady and the Saratoga Arts Center. maryfrancesmillet.com

The second speaker is Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham, Founder of Women TIES, LLC, a 22 year woman entrepreneur who has developed exceptional media and marketing expertise to promote her company and women business owners associated with it.

Women's Athletic Network Event - 2nd Annual 19K Right to Run Race

Kathrine Switzer Featuring:
Kathrine Switzer

Saturday, May 13, 2017
8:30 a.m.
Seneca Falls, New York

Reservations due:  May 12

$27.00  (5K race entry fee prior to 4/1/17)
$50.00  (19K race entry fee prior to 4/1/17)

Women TIES and its division the Women's Athletic Network proudly supports the 2nd Annual 19K Right to Run Race.

The Women's Right to Run is an event featuring
both a 19K and a 5K running race in historic Seneca Falls, NY on Saturday May 13, 2017– the Saturday of Mother's Day Weekend. The event is open to all, it is NOT a women only event.

Seneca Falls was the site of the first Women's Rights Convention in 1848 and is known as the Birthplace of Women's Rights.

The course is picturesque and relatively flat. Both distances run through the New York Chiropractic College, by the Elizabeth Cady Stanton house, and by the Vendor Village – which is located on a major street in town. It will end at the future home of The National Women's Hall of Fame, the Seneca Knitting Mill. The event is a fundraiser for the renovation and will become The Center for Great Women.

About the Presenter

Long distance running legend, activist and author Kathrine Switzer is the national spokesperson for the run. In 1967 Switzer became the first women to officially run and finish the then all-male Boston Marathon, and won the New York City Marathon in 1974.
