OPIS has stepped things up this year by adding casino games to the evening! Cocktails, dinner, and of course networking, are all still on the agenda, plus we’re continuing the “new” traditions of awarding the 2nd Annual NYH Distinguished Service Award and supporting a local charity. All of the evening’s festivities promise to deliver another enjoyable evening for every participant.
Single ticket sales, sponsorship and reserved table sales are all now open. Join OPIS and your colleagues and spend a worthwhile evening of networking, developing new contacts and identifying critical business opportunities.
We look forward to seeing you at the Gala in October!

All festivities will take place in the Majestic Ballroom on the 5th floor of the Westin Times Square.
Be sure to bring your Gala ticket – it is required to gain entrance.
Try your luck at your choice of blackjack, poker, roulette, and craps while you mingle with your colleagues as you enjoy passed hors d’oeuvres and signature New York cocktails. We’ll stake you to start and after that you’ll have to pay to play. All proceeds from the sale of chips goes toward DREAM, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide inner-city youth with opportunities to Play, Learn, and Grow.
Take your seat as the evening’s sumptuous 3-course meal gets underway. Gaming will be paused for the dinner and award presentation.
Enjoy dinner with your clients and contacts as well as honor the recipient of the 2nd Annual New York Harbor Distinguished Service Award.
Get back to winning big … the more you play, the more DREAM wins! Remember: All proceeds from the sale of the casino game chips go toward DREAM.
Turn in your chips and stick around to find out who wins the evening’s Grand Prize: a one-night weekend stay at the Westin Times Square including breakfast for two at the Foundry Restaurant. *Must be present for the announcement to win.
The person winning the most “money” at the tables will be named the night’s Big Winner and be awarded the Grand Prize.
This year OPIS is proud to announce that its charitable partner for the 56th Annual New York Harbor Fuel Supply & Distribution Club Gala is DREAM.
As a youth development organization, DREAM works with more than 2,200 boys and girls every year in after-school and summer programs and at DREAM Charter School. Their mission is to provide each and every kid with opportunities to recognize their potential and realize their dreams, as they take the steps to become competent, confident, and caring adults who will make a difference in their communities and the world.
Formerly known as Harlem RBI and DREAM Charter School, they combined under one name — DREAM — in 2017.
DREAM’s mission is to provide inner-city youth with opportunities to Play, Learn, and Grow. They use the power of teams to coach, teach, and inspire youth to recognize their potential and realize their dreams.
