VOA Annual Gala

Celebrating the positive impact each person has on the lives of those we serve.

Thank you for those that sponsored or attended our annual gala on April 18, 2024 at The Arbor Loft. Your generosity and contributions raised $115,000 in support of tackling the issue of homelessness, enhancing childhood education, and combating poverty in the Rochester area.

Dr. Junior Dillion, President and CEO of VOA Upstate New York, shared the stage with notable speakers including Mayor Malik Evans and presenting sponsor Bank of America’s Rochester President Colleen Matteson, emphasizing the collective effort needed to advance the mission, highlighting the organization’s success in serving over 5,000 individuals annually.

The gala also featured an engaging online silent auction and interactive impact tables where attendees could learn about VOA’s innovative housing and reentry programs, the Children’s Center, and the hydroponic urban garden project, The Farm.

We hope to see you there again next year!
