23rd Annual "New Beginnings" Gala

Dec 6, 2014, 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM Location: The Oncenter

Gourmet Dining  .  Entertainment  .  Silent Auction 

"New Beginnings” is the annual holiday gala sponsored by the Vera House Foundation Board of Trustees to benefit the programs and services of Vera House, Inc.  “New Beginnings” will bring together over 500 guests to celebrate the season and support the agency’s mission to end domestic and sexual violence.

We are thrilled to pay special tribute to Lynn & David Horowitch, our 2014 Gala Honorary Chairs, and look forward to acknowledging their long-standing commitment to Vera House.

The evening includes an exciting silent auction featuring high-end items such as vacations, artwork, sporting event tickets, jewelry and much, much more. You’ll also be able to dance the night away to the sounds of Atlas, boasting the finest musicians in Upstate New York.

Last year our "New Beginnings" Gala raised over $144,000 for Vera House Programs and services.  Please help us ensure a successful event this year too!  Many options are available to support this important fund-raiser:

  • Consider an underwriting gift – sponsorships are essential to our Gala’s success. What a great way to reach a diverse audience and promote your company’s social activism and commitment to Central New York!
  • Don’t miss all the excitement…purchase tickets to our “New Beginnings” Gala! Tickets are available for $195 per person. Donor ($1,950) and Patron tables ($2,250) of 10 are also available.  Check back soon for online reservations.  
  • Purchase a program ad – we have sizes available from quarter-page to full-page, with prices ranging from $100-$350.
  • Donate a unique item for our silent auction.

THANK YOU to our 2014 sponsors for their generosity in helping to make "New Beginnings" possible*:
