Cicero (WSYR-TV) -- People from around Central New York were in Cicero for the inaugural "Stop the Hate, Spread the Hope" gala.

The non-profit is known for it's mission to stop bullying in local schools.

The theme for the event was "Making Hope a Reality."

The group started their mission after hearing how many students in our area struggled with depression and suicide all because of bullying.

"When we heard those stories we were shocked at the severity of the issue of bullying so we had the crazy idea to change the world and here we are three years later at our Hope gala and its going amazing," said Nick Longo, CEO of Stop The Hate, Spread the Hope.

The money from the event will help the group continue spreading their message to local students.

It will also help fund the Hope Scholarship Program.
