The 18th Annual Mayor's Charity Ball: Into the Woods!

  • West Hartford Town Auditorium (map)

WEST HARTFORD, CT – Now in its 18th year, The Mayor's Charity Ball has been set for Saturday, May 13, 2017. Guests can expect an unforgettable evening out under the stars - and into the woods! - complete with drinks, dinner and entertainment. Hosted by the Honorable Mayor Shari Cantor, the event’s proceeds are gifted to two West Hartford non-profit organizations: Playhouse on Park and The Town That Cares. 

The night begins in the West Hartford Town Auditorium at 6pm with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction featuring gift certificates to local restaurants and businesses, unique events and services, vacations and more. Guests then make their way to the Grande Tent on the Town Hall Green for a sit-down dinner and wine provided by the notoriously talented chefs of Max Catering. Dancing and a cash bar follow, along with a live auction. Your emcees for the night are Sean Harris, Playhouse on Park's co-artistic director, and Rich Hollman, two of the stars in the upcoming Playhouse production The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged).

Stay tuned for updates on entertainment for the evening. As always, Playhouse on Park's very own stop/time dance theater is ready to wow with a tantalizing performance.

 This year’s celebration also features an online auction for those who are unable to attend in person. Interested parties may visit
