UTICA, NY – Utica residents were having a ball Saturday night.
A Winter Ball.
The Parkway Center hosted its first ever Winter Ball at the Delta Hotels by Marriott on Genesee Street.
The evening started out with some hors-d'oeuvres, followed by a sit-down dinner.
Then Showtime took the stage for a night of music and dancing.
There were also a variety of holiday gift baskets for people to bid on.
Kelly Walters, the executive director of the Parkway Center, says the money raised at the Winter Ball, will support the many programs and services for local seniors at the Parkway Center.
“They walk in the door. They get engaged. They participate in activities, and they’re meeting new people. They’re socializing and then they’re volunteering. Without the services we provide, a lot of people would be lonely, their independence would be lessened.”
