YWCA Ulster County Gala – 2022

Wednesday, July 20th – 6 p.m.


Through a new twist on our famous “Tribute to Women,” the Women Who Roar for the Y Gala celebrated selfless service and contribution. The Senate Garage quickly filled up with over 100 supportive members of the community, and we toasted the women whose commitment to service and super-human strength motivates our efforts in launching a successful Century Strong Campaign for the YWCA Ulster County.


Guests enjoyed entertainment from Grammy Nominated Artist Tracy Bonham, The Rock Academy, Kitani, Marlene Merritt, and more. Mary Giuliani Catering & Events donated their catering services to supply guests with hors d’oeuvres & signature cocktails, and guests also took part in the chance to take home items such as wellness packages, tickets to live shows, classes, and more from our silent auction

Timely Signs, sponsor and frequent collaborator with YWCA Ulster County, donated a custom YWCA Step and Repeat for guests to use as a backdrop in photos.
Mary Giuliani Catering & Events and Honorland Development Partners provided hors d’oeuvres and beverages, along with friendly service.

We honored the following women who are committed to their steadfast advocacy for our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women in Ulster County and beyond:

  • Isis Benitez
