The 20th Annual Mayor‘s Charity Ball, a fundraiser for Playhouse on Park and The Town That Cares, will be held on Saturday, May 11, 2019.


It’s a big year for The Mayor’s Charity Ball!

Since West Hartford’s most exciting charity event was founded in 1999, all attendees this year, including Mayor Shari Cantor, are going to party like it’s 1999. The gala benefitting two local charities, Playhouse on Park and The Town That Cares, is set for Saturday, May 11 from 6 p.m.-midnight.

A cocktail reception and silent auction will kick off the night, complete with an open bar. WFSB Channel 3’s Dennis House and Kara Sundlun will co-host the ball. DORO Catering & Events will serves the official caterer. Guests will dine on an array of delicious homemade fare, showcasing the flavors and styles specific to each DORO Group restaurant – Treva, Àvert, and Zohara.

Entertainment will be provided by Playhouse on Park’s “Mama D’s” cast of performers, under the direction of Playhouse co-founder and co-artistic director, Darlene Zoller. The music of Locomotion will serve as additional entertainment for the night, and are guaranteed to get guests up on their feet and dancing.

Fabulous auction items await the bids of guests of the Mayor’s Charity Ball.

The 20th Annual Mayor’s Charity Ball is open to all who want a fun night out while supporting a great cause. Given the throwback theme of this year’s ball, its organizers are suggesting attendees plan for black tie, or, as an alternative, their finest vintage 90s attire.

Proceeds from last year’s event covered important operating expenses for Playhouse youth programming, and helped The Town That Cares meet a significant uptick in requests for the Food Pantry.

Tickets for the Mayor’s Charity Ball are now on sale for $200 per person. Guests may also purchase a table for eight at $16,000 or 10 at $2,000.
