A dedication is being held today at 334 E. Utica Street for the new Beverly Gray Business Exchange Center. The Exchange Center will be a central East Side business hub for, primarily, minority and women business enterprises. Gray, a former Council Member and community activist, fought to elevate the small business community on Buffalo’s East Side.
Gray envisioned Jefferson Avenue and Buffalo’s Eastside as a hub for innovation and economic growth.
The dedication, being held from 10:30 am to noon, will include an unveiling of a portrait of Beverly A. Gray, and an introduction to The Exchange Center – update: this event has been postponed due to weather. The event will be followed up by an Evening Open House, where the community will have an opportunity to learn about the many services provided by The Exchange Center.
