The Arc Oneida-Lewis will be the beneficiaries of the 2019 Mayor's Gala.

Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri and his wife Susan made the announcement on Wednesday.

The event will take place on Saturday, April 27th from 6:00 to 11:00 at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel Utica.

Tickets are $50 per person.  They can be purchased at the Mayor's Benefit Gala website or at the door.

Mayor Palmieri and Susan Palmieri said, “We are very proud to support The Arc, Oneida-Lewis and this exciting initiative that will enhance the quality of life for individuals with disabilities. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the many local restaurants and businesses whose generous donations make the Gala a successful event each year. We encourage everyone to come and join us for a wonderful evening and support Chefs Express.”
