Mayor’s Message

Greetings from Mayor Dave Ryan

We are honoured and grateful to be celebrating our 15th Pickering Mayor’s Gala. We could never have reached this milestone and delivered so much good for our community without the sustained support of sponsors, attendees, donors, and of course our volunteers. Thank you!

Please join us again this year for an elegant and exclusive Black & White Ball on Saturday, November 16. It will be an affair to remember with fine foods, entertainment, and dancing.

Long after the fanfare and fun of the evening has ended, the funds raised will still be bettering lives in our community. We’re most proud that the Pickering Mayor’s Gala has raised more than $2.6 million in support of our Ajax Pickering Hospital and other critically important community organizations. This year, we will also be supporting Durham Mental Health Services and the Carea Community Health Centre – Pickering.

I look forward to welcoming you at the 15th Pickering Mayor’s Gala on Saturday, November 16.

Dave Ryan
Mayor, Pickering
