Sister Friends is an event that celebrates women during Women’s History Month in March. Women of all ages from elementary school-aged to elderly and from all sizes, shapes, socio-economic status, sexual orientation and ethnicities gather for a beautiful luncheon and program at Emerson Suites, Ithaca College. There is a Women’s Market for participants to purchase unique items and crafts from women-owned local vendors. Our event has been sold out for the past 12 years and we expect it to be sold out this year as well.

This event is also an opportunity for networking and enrichment for the women attending. Our partners, including Cornell University, Tompkins County, and Ithaca College promote career opportunities for our audience of women.

We are are seeking business sponsorship or individual donations to help us maintain low ticket costs in order to make sure this event accessible to all women.


Organized by the Multicultural Resource Center and Co-Sponsored by Ithaca College, Greater Ithaca Activities Center, Baker Travel, City of Ithaca Human Resources Department, Cornell Cooperative Extension of TC, Cornell University, Center for Transformative Action, Tompkins County, McGraw House and community members!
