What started out as an idea for a fun night out has turned into annual gala.  The Greater Utica Chamber of Commerce will host their 3rd annual Sweater Ball this year.  The event is January 25 on the stage of The Stanley Theater in Utica.  Pamela Matt, Executive Director at the Chamber offers some tips on how to dress for the night as well as runs down the night's entertainment.

Pamela says this isn't like the "ugly sweater" events you hear about around Christmas Time.  In fact the motto is “Dress up or down, jeans or gown, but to make it better, you must wear a sweater!

The Sweater Ball runs from 6:30 to 10:30 at The Stanley with Gridley Paige providing the entertainment, butlered hors d’ oeuvres, open beer & wine bar, carving stations by A Moveable Feast by O’Connor’s, auctions, giveaways and contests, including the 'Best Sweater.'  Last year's winner may be hard to top.
