Mayor’s Message

Greetings from Mayor Dave Ryan

This year, we will be swaying to a whole new vibe when we touch down in the Caribbean.  Who doesn’t love tropical sunsets, lush vistas, turquoise waters, icy cocktails, and a rhythmic energy that can’t be found anywhere else on earth?  Now imagine experiencing all of that and more with 350 of your closest friends at the 2017 Mayor’s Gala.

While November 18 will be a truly spectacular and memorable evening, it’s important to remember that first and foremost, the Mayor’s Gala is a community fundraiser for the We’re excited to announce that a donation from this year’s gala will be purchasing neonatal monitors for our Ajax Pickering Hospital – our community’s most valuable asset.  In addition to the hospital, we will be donating a portion of the funds raised to the Grandview Kids in support of the Grandview Children’s Centre..

None of this would be possible without your invaluable support!  As such, I want to personally thank Presenting Sponsor, Mattamy Homes, as well as all of our wonderful corporate sponsors for their ongoing commitment to the Ajax Pickering Hospital and our community.

We’re turning up the heat this year, and we hope you can join us on November 18.  And as the temperature rises, so too will the fun.  It’s going to be Hot, Hot, Hot!

Dave Ryan
Mayor, Pickering
