2023 Goodwill Gala

This year, our annual Goodwill Gala was held on March 11th at the Hyatt Regency Rochester. The theme was Dancing in Denim to bring to light the importance of sustainability and mindfulness in fashion. Some of the highlights of the night were the presentation of our Visionary Award, which will now be named the Dr. Gwen Sterns Visionary Award, and our Upcycled Denim Fashion Show, which showcased talented local designers. Thanks to your donations and support at the Dancing in Denim Goodwill Gala this past Saturday, we were able to raise over $200,000 for our community programs and services! Thank you to all of our guests for making the 2023 Goodwill Gala a success, we can't wait to celebrate more with you next year!

Our next Goodwill Gala will be held on March 2nd, 2024.
