By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Upstate Cerebral Palsy Foundation held their 62nd annual meeting Wednesday night at the Radisson Hotel in Utica.

The dinner honored outstanding UCP employees and members of the community vital to the organization's success. WKTV's own Joleen Ferris was honored for her volunteerism, specifically for her work with UCP's annual American Girl Doll Fashion Show.

"She's our MC for the event, but really does a lot of things behind the scenes, and as a supporter throughout the year, she's just a true angel for our agency," said Louis Tehan, CEO of Upstate Cerebral Palsy.

The American Girl event has turned into the organization's most profitable event, bringing in more than $65,000 a year for UCP.
