Springbrook to Host 11th Annual Gala


Oneonta, NY: On April 9th, 2016, hundreds of Springbrook’s most generous supporters, families, employees, and participants will be in attendance at the organization’s Springbrook Strong Gala—Compassion, Commitment, Community. The event will take place at The Otesaga Resort Hotel in Cooperstown, New York.

The evening will begin at 6:30 pm with an open bar cocktail reception where guests can try their luck in one of Springbrook’s most news_2016gala_2.gifpopular gala events—the Benefit Wine Pull. During the Benefit Wine Pull, participants are invited to purchase a randomly numbered wine cork, which gives them the chance to “pull” a bottle of wine, liquor, or craft beer, which could be anything from a standard bottle to a vintage or signature variety. Then, following a delicious dinner served at 8 pm, guests will have the opportunity to mingle, play a game of Blackjack, Roulette, or other great casino-style games, or dance to and enjoy live music.

Springbrook is proud to welcome back the highly anticipated New York Players’ Body and Soul to provide live musical entertainment. After a decade of performing at a range of events, the Albany-based band has built a reputation as New England’s premier musical entertainment group for private occasions. This will be their third Springbrook gala performance. The Springbrook Strong gala will also feature Master Balloon Artist, Daryl Baldwin, from Balloon Extravaganzas, who creates fascinating balloon sculptures before guests’ eyes.
