About the Ladies Only Luncheon

An Erie tradition, the Ladies Only Luncheon is a sell-out event that supports services for children at the Barber National Institute.  More than 400 women gather the Saturday before Thanksgiving to launch the holiday season with shopping and lunch.  This is one event where you get dressed up and enjoy the day in style!
