Reaching Out...Changing Lives

Categories ,


On Sunday, October 14, 2018 at Hart’s Hill in Whitesboro we celebrated our 26th year of Gourmet Guys.  This year we started a new tradition and invited the region’s best Restaurants to the Rescue! They prepared their best entrees which were served by Celebrity Waiters from throughout our community.  The event was a great success with nearly 300 people in attendance! We were able to raise nearly $24,000 for Rescue Mission programs!

It was exciting to see our guests enjoying all the delicious entrees, desserts, appetizers and soups.  Not only was it fun to sample all the tasteful dishes, but it was gratifying to know that the proceeds of the event will help meet the needs of the thousands of needy men and women coming to the Mission each and every day!

Special thank you to our Platinum Sponsor: Bank of Utica; Gold Sponsors: Adirondack Bank, PJ Green, and Utica First Insurance Company; Media Sponsor: Roser Communications Network, Inc.; Silver Sponsor: Barclay Damon; and Bronze Sponsor: Jay-K Lumber. Thank you to our participating restaurants and celebrity servers who made this a successful event.  Lastly, thank you to many ad sponsors, Silent Auction donors, contributing sponsors, and volunteers. This event would not be possible without your participation!
