The Corning Museum of Glass sparkled with goodwill on Saturday evening as Pro Action of Steuben and Yates held its ninth annual Bella Notte, a fundraising gala to benefit the Community Action Angels Program. The program is dedicated to providing financial aid to individuals in dire need who have exhausted other resources. The event was marked by a spirit of unity and generosity as women from various walks of life gathered to support this cause.

Laura Rossman, the CEO of Pro Action of Steuben and Yates, highlighted the essence of the occasion, saying, “Bella Notte is a special night where women unite to have fun, dance, and generously spend in support of each other and the broader community.” The event is designed to empower women and strengthen community ties while raising crucial funds. Guests enjoyed a festive atmosphere, with raffles and invitations to dance the night away in their finest attire, all in the spirit of charity.

The event’s success was underscored by a full house, as 300 women attended the sold-out gala. Amey Rusak, the organization’s Coordinator of Communications and Outreach, emphasized the impact of the collective effort: “Every small contribution can significantly affect a family.” Buoyed by the night’s success and the prospect of making an even greater impact, the organizers are already anticipating next year’s tenth annual Bella Notte.
