Join us as we celebrate Upstate Medical University. This special evening will begin at 7pm with the Patron Party for our sponors, followed by the Gala at 8pm. 

Proceeds from the 2018 Gala will benefit pediatric psychiatric services at Upstate University Hospital. The need for this support is signigicant: over the past few years, there has been a five-fold increase in children and adolescents coming to the Emergency Department with behavioral health complaints; rates are rising for suicide attempts and self harm (they are up to a staggering 25 percent among adolescent girls); and currently there is a five-day wait for children and adolescents to find a psychiatric bed. The Upstate Foundation is pleased to be part of the creation of a new eight-bed pediatric psychiatric unit at the hospital.
