Buffalo Gals Luncheon
October 18, 11:45 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Kuyper Dining Pavilion
Join us for a delicious lunch and a talk by our guest speaker Bethany Hamilton Sandvik titled Beyond the Cody Monologues: More Tales of Famous and Infamous Women of the West.
The playwright talks about some of the influential women who helped to shape Cody’s history and culture. Using research from her playwriting process, Sandvik and her guests from the summer 2017 play The Cody Monologues read excerpts from the play, expand on some of the stories contained within it, and share some interesting stories that didn’t make it to the stage.
Cost for our luncheon is just $25 for Buffalo Bill Center of the West members and $35 for non-members. Space is limited, so reserve your seat today by e-mailing our Membership Office or calling 307-578-4008.
