2nd Annual Global Citizens Gala

Rochester Global Connections (RGC) is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Global Citizens Gala, an evening to celebrate and recognize fellow global citizens, while supporting essential international education programs in Rochester that promote international understanding and a more peaceful and prosperous world. The Gala will be held on Wednesday, May 1st from 5:30-8:00PM at the Italian American Community Center.

 Proceeds raised at the event will go towards building capacity for international education programs that help connect people in Rochester with international students and international visitors to form friendships and enriching, life changing exchanges that build bridges across cultures. Andy Nahas and the Prospect Fund is proud to be the lead sponsor of the Gala and sponsorship opportunities are still available.

 This year, RGC has three award categories to honor international students, volunteers, and an outstanding organization or leader in the community that has made a global impact on a local level. The nominees and award recipients will be announce in early April.
