It promises to be a gala event, and a beneficial one as well.

"It" is the upcoming second annual Gala to benefit the Colley Senior Complex. Set for 8 p.m. May 4 at the Troy Country Club, the event includes a silent auction and social event.

"Last year was our first Gala to support the Colley Senior Complex and it was fun, profitable – and exciting," said Mary Ann Casey, director of the complex. "We expect this year’s Gala to be even more fun."

Tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased at the Complex, 808-8500.

"The Gala was well attended last year and we really needed more room," Casey said. "This year we will have a tent on site to better accommodate the crowd."

Because the Gala is a fund raising event for the senior complex, there will be additional opportunities to support the senior center by participating in the silent auction.

"The Colley Senior Complex is a foundation," Casey said. "We are a non-profit organization and are subsidized by the City of Troy, but we do have needs other than what is provided for us."

The items that will be available through the silent auction include, paintings by local artists, trips and miscellaneous items.

All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Colley Senior Complex.
