UTICA, N.Y. -- Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri, and his wife, Sue, presented a check for $56,000 to the ARC Oneida-Lewis chapter on Friday morning.
The ARC has served people with developmental disabilities since 1954.
“The money will be used to help renovate the space. To be able to get the equipment and purchase the equipment that will help create those great cupcakes and keep that going. We're also going to be using space for our fine art program, where we have artist, so actual art work will be produced there perhaps, and certainly shown there,” said Karen Korotzer, the CEO ARC Oneida/ Lewis.
This was actually the largest check presented to a local organization from the mayor's gala. They pick a different beneficiary every year.
