Goodwill of the Finger Lakes hosts annual gala in Downtown Rochester

Goodwill of the Finger Lakes and Smola Consulting will host The Goodwill Gala: Walk The New Blue on Saturday, March 12, from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Rochester

“Goodwill is thrilled to host our gala in person — the first in two years,” President & CEO Jennifer Lake said. “Attendees will not only have a great time but will ensure our programs will continue to provide excellent and impactful services to our community.”

The annual gala will include an evening of silent and live auctions, food stations and open bar, and a fashion show. Goodwill will also present its Visionary Award to the Rochester Female Charitable Society, with music and dancing to complete the night. This “blue tie” affair encourages attendees to dress in their favorite blue although any color will do.

“It’s guaranteed to be filled with fun and excitement while sharing the great mission of Goodwill and its community-focused programs,” Vice President of Community Engagement Jennifer Boutte said. “Walk the New Blue is an event that you won’t want to miss. Help us make it a Gala to remember!”

The gala will follow COVID-19 guidelines.
