Sponsorship Opportunities

The 2020 RES Gala Event celebrates the accomplishments of engineers, scientists and technologists of all disciplines and highlights the critical importance of engineering to the greater Rochester community. It draws more than 250 individuals including aspiring young engineers, and highly accomplished professional and academic engineers.

If you have been to the Gala Event in the past, you realize how important it is to the youngest most promising engineers of our community.  Your sponsorship and presence at the event is not only memorable for these young individuals and their families, but it also serves to ensure similar opportunities will be celebrated in the years to come.  This is our only major fundraising effort that supports this century long tradition of celebrating engineering in Rochester! 

The Gala Event is an exciting evening of networking, dining, entertainment and celebration with over 250 colleagues in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. We will recognize the finalists and announce the recipient of the 57th Engineer of the Year Award, the 13th Kate Gleason Young Engineer of the Year Award three Kate Gleason Young Engineer of the Year Awards and four 2019 Rochester Engineers of Distinction.  In addition, over $25,000 in scholarships will be awarded to local high school and college students in support of their engineering education.  Help us today in sponsoring this event. Your support really matters!

We are proud to offer several sponsorship opportunities for the Gala Event.  We also highly encourage companies to exhibit a product or project prototype to help showcase how important engineering is to our community.
