We make a living by what we get, but a life by what we give.


We will celebrate both 2020 and 2021 honorees this year! Because we canceled our 2020 gala at the outbreak of the pandemic this year will be an extra special event. To provide everyone with a safe and enjoyable experience, guests can attend virtually or in-person. All New York State and CDC recommendations will be followed for preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Tickets are available for $130 each or $100 for a young professionals (under 30). This is our main fundraiser of the year and we hope we can count on your support!

The event will be using the Handbid app to safely process your support for our  auction and direct donations, both in person and remotely. Instructions for this user friendly and state-of-the-art app are available by clicking on the link below.

All bidders must register with the Handbid app prior to the Gala. If you have any difficulty setting up your account, please contact Gail Hessney at 518-463-1211 x 201 before the day of the event.
