Celebrating the American Dream
The American Dream has served as a beacon of hope for generations of immigrants seeking life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness. While it is a dream for individuals to build a better life for
themselves and their families, it is also something much greater: a dream laying the framework
on which our nation was built.
The Immigrants’ Ball will be an evening dedicated to celebrating the arrivals whose courage,
hard work, resilience, and sacrifice have shaped our community in the Capital Region.
In every field of life, newcomers to these shores have excelled and often paved the way for
innovation and discovery. It is an honor to honor those achievements in our own community.
The Immigrants’ Ball will be honoring:
Oluwaseun A. Adetayo MD, Nigeria
Vikash & Vikram Agrawal, India
Guha and Karthik Bala, India
Isabel Byon, South Korea
Muhsin Celik, Turkey
Antonio Civitella, Italy

All proceeds from The Immigrant’s Ball will benefit the dozens of programs and scholarships for
young and old that Proctors makes available to ensure equal opportunities for all.
