Our annual elegant affair will be held on October 15, 2022. We will celebrate and acknowledge those who have put forth efforts to strive for a positive change in our community.

This year our theme is Masquerade and for the second time we are hosting our event at Revel 32, located on 32 Cannon Street, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601.
