Gala Di Mistero masquerade ball to benefit Neighborhood Center


UTICA — The Neighborhood Center is hosting its  Gala Di Mistero in person again this summer. After hosting the Gala virtually last year in light of COVID, this year, guests can enjoy a mysterious and intriguing evening in person.

The Neighborhood Center’s 5th annual Gala Di Mistero masquerade ball will take pace at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 18, at Teugega Country Club, 6801 Golf Course Road, Rome. This year’s theme is “Le Cirque des Reves” - The Night Circus.

The evening, a benefit for The Neighborhood Center, will consist of themed delicacies and food prepared by a local culinary master with an open bar serving signature libations. As guests mingle with other masked guests they will experience and participate with the mystery of Illusionist Shaun Robison, the acrobatic artistry of the famous CirqOvation Performers, caricature artist and other unexpected revelries.

The Neighborhood Center Executive Director Sandra Soroka said, “Our Fifth Gala Di Mistero promises to bring magic and bewilderment to all who attend! The Cirque des Reves theme is sure to treat guests to an unforgettable and dream-like evening of fantasy and fun, remember to get into the theme as you are part of the magic!” Soroka said that proceeds from the Gala go directly to benefit the children’s programs of the Neighborhood Center.

Gala Di Mistero is a 21 and older, black tie-and-masks-preferred event with exciting fundraisers and silent auctions. Tickets are $125 per person.
