Believe in Syracuse Progress Gala, Hotel Syracuse

July 22, 2016
John DeSantis, founder and Executive Director of Believe in Syracuse, says his mission is to promote positive perceptions and improve the quality of life in Greater Syracuse by converting local pride into meaningful action. If turnout at the gala event was any indication, he has a lot of loyal supporters. Over 250 decked-out guests gathered in the Grand Ballroom for dinner, music and comments by hotel owner/renovator Ed Riley and keynote speaker Sean Kirst. Many guests reminisced about their favorite hotel events over the years. It was a great evening and a testament to the momentum for John’s mission.
