Mayor’s Message

Greetings from Mayor Dave Ryan

This year, the Mayor’s Gala takes you to exhilarating, dazzling, and decadent New Orleans, Mardi Gras!  Beyond the parades and revelry of Bourbon Street, New Orleans Social Clubs have been holding elegant society balls in celebration of Mardi Gras for over 250 years.  And on November 17, we invite you and 350 of your closest friends to experience one of these balls first hand!  

While it will be a truly spectacular and memorable evening, it’s important to remember that first and foremost, the Mayor’s Gala is a fundraiser for the Ajax Pickering Hospital and other important community organizations.  None of this would be possible without your invaluable support!  As such, I want to personally thank all of our wonderful guests and corporate sponsors for their ongoing commitment to our community.

While Fat Tuesday has come and gone, the real party will be taking place on  November 17.  I hope to see you at 2018 Pickering Mayor’s Gala!

Dave Ryan
Mayor, Pickering
