Town Hall was the place to be on Saturday evening. Guests at the 16th Annual Mayor’s Charity Ball began the evening by walking down the “red carpet” into Town Hall.

“Mike Casey & Friends” provided mood music during the cocktail reception as guests mingled, enjoyed hors d’ouvres, and bid on silent auction items.

At 8 p.m., guests moved into the “Grande Tent” where they were entertained by the Playhouse on Park’s stop/time dance theater. Patrick McCabe, Mayor Scott Slifka, Helen Rubino-Turco, and Tracy Flater took the floor to thank guests for their support on behalf of the committee, the town, and the two non-profits supported by the gala – The Town That Cares Fund and Playhouse on Park.

The cast of “Hair” – the next show scheduled for Playhouse on Park’s Main Stage Series – entertained the audience as guests enjoyed dinner prepared by Max Catering.

Jim Altman of FOX CT served as emcee and auctioneer for the live auction before guests headed to the dance floor for several sets of energetic music by The Metropolitan Players.
