Message from Gala Co-Chairs

In this turbulent, heartbreaking year it seems nothing has gone untouched by the COVID-19 pandemic, including our Pickering Mayor’s Gala.

After much discussion with Mayor Dave Ryan and our gala organizing committee, we made the difficult decision not to hold the Pickering Mayor’s Gala in 2020. We were not content to just walk away though and thankfully neither were our amazing sponsors.

Along with everyone else, we are so appreciative and inspired by our heroic essential workers who have cared for our community, protected our community, and provided all the things required for our community to continue life with some sense of normalcy. Together, we have found a way to honour and celebrate their unselfish contributions to our community’s welfare.

In partnership with our gala sponsors, we will be purchasing state of the art ventilators for critically ill patients at our Ajax and Pickering Hospital. Thank you again to our incredible sponsors. A special thank you also to our organizing committee for their continued commitment to our gala and our community.

We will really miss being together with you at the gala this year. We look forward to laughing and dancing, celebrating, and strengthening our community together again on November 20, 2021.
