The Rotary Club of Utica’s ‘Service Above Self Gala,’ presented by the SBS
Marketing Group, will once again grace the famous Stanley Theatre stage on Friday, June 7 from 6-11 p.m.

The black tie (optional) event, now in its third year, 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’s stage. Tickets are $150 per person. This year’s Gala benefits the Resource Center for Independent Living (RCIL), with proceeds supporting their ‘Arts for Many Hearts’ day program.

“The Service Above Self Gala is back and bigger than ever,” said Gala Committee
Chairman and Utica Rotary Past President Stephen Turnbull. “Thanks to the generosity
of past attendees and sponsors, our first two Galas raised nearly $30,000 supporting
causes such as CABVI’s Camp Abilities and Utica Zoo’s Red Panda Exhibit. We’re excited to announce RCIL as the beneficiary of this year’s event as their ‘Arts for Many Hearts’ program offers wonderful activities to caregivers and their loved ones. We can’t wait for June 7 and hope you’ll join us on The Stanley’s stage.”
