The Cause

Our second Annual "Service Above Self" Gala combines Rotary fun, fellowship and fundraising to benefit the Utica Zoo's Red Panda Exhibit Project. This is a flagship event for the Rotary Club of Utica, exemplifying our motto of Service Above Self. Our inaugural event last year raised $12,000 for Camp Abilities operated by the Central Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

The Gala

The gala features an evening of dining and dancing at the historic Stanley Theatre.
The black tie event begins with red carpet treatment as guests arrive, followed by a cocktail hour, live music by Soul Injection, and a seated dinner on the Stanley stage.
Tickets are $150 per person. We hope to see you there!

Be a Sponsor

Our sponsors really make a difference in the success of our Service Above Self Gala and, like the Rotary Club, they want to make an impact in the community. Sponsorships come with benefits, such as tickets and publicity. This year SBS Group has stepped up to be our Presenting Sponsor. Additional sponsorships range from the $2,000 Gold Level to the $1,000 Silver Level to the $500 Bronze Level. There is also a Corporate Table sponsorship for $1,200 (with seating for eight).
