About the Mayors Gala
The inaugural Mayors Gala was held in 2010 to introduce residents from Stratford, St. Marys and across Perth County to the Community Foundation and its vital role in community investment. Named for the support and participation of all the Mayors from across Perth County, Stratford and St. Marys, the Mayors Gala is a celebration of the spirit and the power of philanthropy.
Today, the Mayors Gala has earned the reputation as one of the ‘premiere’ events in Stratford, St. Marys and Perth County’s social calendar. Known for its elegance and free flowing itinerary, the Gala is attended annually by 300 business and community leaders from the local area and also draws attendees from the Toronto, London and Waterloo Region.
An elegant cocktail-type social affair, guests mingle and network with old friends, and new alike, and enjoy gourmet fare. Net proceeds from the Mayors Gala, the Community Foundation’s signature fundraiser, provide vital funds to support the annual operations of the Community Foundation.
Spirit and Power of Philanthropy ~ Since 2010, over to $725,000 has been raised at the annual Mayors Gala benefiting the Stratford Perth Community Foundation. Tickets are available online at www.spccf.ca or by calling 519-271-1503.
