UTICA, NY (March 4, 2019) – The Children’s Dyslexia Center is hosting their 5th Annual Gala Event on Saturday, March 9th at Hart’s Hill Inn located at 135 Clinton Street in Whitesboro. This event will include a cocktail hour, dinner, live entertainment, photo booth opportunities and basket raffles. This year’s theme, “Unmasking Dyslexia” is designed to bring awareness to this on-going struggle affecting children and families, while placing attention on the educational resources available to help improve the overall learning experience for these children. Although Dyslexia might not be an obvious physical barrier, there can be overwhelming mental and emotional consequences for children who do not have access to the necessary tools to help manage their Dyslexia. The Gala will be hosted by John Sallustio and Copper City Hospitality & Entertainment. The evening will feature a cocktail hour starting at 6 p.m. followed by dinner at 7 p.m. There will be a photo booth available from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. along with live entertainment by Magician Jim Lutz. Tickets are $50 per person and $90 per couple. They are available at the Children’s Dyslexia Center of Central New York, by calling (315) 736-0574.
