Upstate Gala

The Upstate Gala, Upstate Foundation’s largest social event of the year, was held at the Nicholas J. Pirro Convention Center at Oncenter Complex Friday, Nov. 22. Festivities began at 8 pm, with the pre-Gala patron and sponsor party starting at 7 pm.  

The black-tie optional event featured a delectable assortment of small plate dining options and dancing to the music of the capital district’s Grand Central Station Band. 

The 30th annual Upstate Gala was co-chaired by Dr. and Mrs. G. Randall Green. Dr. Green is division chief of cardiac surgery and inaugural director of the Upstate Heart Institute. The Upstate Heart Institute unites the expertise and advanced technologies of cardiac surgeons, and cardiovascular and cardiology specialists, set within the resources of the region’s only academic medical university.  

Proceeds will focus on strengthening and expanding heart care services and programs offered in the 17-county service area of Upstate University Hospital. 

“We are truly proud to look back at the past 30 years and recognize the valuable role the Upstate Foundation has played in so many important initiatives, programs and services at Upstate,”  said Eileen Pezzi, vice president for development at Upstate Medical University. “This year, we are pleased to be supporting heart health right here in the heart of Central New York.”
