In just a few short weeks, the Family Justice Center will be hosting our annual Mosaic event on October 19th from 5:30 until 8:30 pm at Lakeward Spirits located at 65 Vandalia Street, Buffalo. Mosaic – a celebration of everything Buffalo – is the Center’s family-friendly, Buffalo-loving event that has a lot in store for everyone!
This year’s festivities have found a new home at Lakeward Spirits, which is located at the 114 year old historic Barrel Factory in the City’s Old First Ward. The Distillery is the perfect back drop for the Buffalo-themed event that is designed to showcase all that we love about Buffalo, including new local businesses like Lakeward Spirits, that have been key in the “re-birth of Buffalo.”
In addition to the new venue, Mosaic 2017 will include food and drink provided by a variety of local restaurants, local entertainment, chances to win a Buffalo Bills experience with John Murphy, a silent and live auction that will include incredible travel packages like a Sonoma Valley Wine excursion, a U.S. Open Golf Tournament Package, and a hands-on culinary experience at Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa, and so much more. You can even take a chance on our Wine Wheel!

The Family Justice Center was delighted to start off Domestic Violence Awareness Month alongside long-time supporter and friend of the FJC, Senator Patrick Gallivan. At a press conference held at the Center on Tuesday, October 3rd, the Senator and our Executive Director, Mary Murphy, announced that the Senator has once again secured $100,000.00 in critical funding to support the Forensic Medical Unit.
The funding that the Senator has been able to secure over the past four years has been the sole source of support for the Forensic Medical Unit, which is the only Forensic Medical Unit in all of New York State that is dedicated to domestic violence victims and is a valuable tool for prosecutors in holding offenders accountable.
We cannot thank Senator Gallivan enough for continuing to support the Forensic Medical Unit and for recognizing the valuable role it plays in holding offenders accountable. Without accountability we can’t end the cycle of abuse. So, thank you Senator for providing the community with the tools needed to try and bring an end to the violence.
