Get Recharged, Energized and Inspired at the 2024 Mayor’s Gala

This Year’s Theme Is Illuminating Possibilities — for Newborns, Seniors and Every Stage of Life in Between

Mark your calendar! Our United Way’s most exciting event of the year is Saturday, April 27th, 2024 — the annual Mayors’ Gala.

Over 900 business leaders, elected officials, philanthropists and trailblazers are all in one fabulous venue to celebrate our united power in Broward County — it’s a one-of-a-kind opportunity to mix, mingle, have fun and support our amazing community at the Seminole Hard Rock & Casino.

This year’s theme for the Mayors’ Gala is Illuminating Possibilities, and it reflects the incredible impact our United Way is making to millions of people and their families at every age and every stage of life.

United, we have improved lives, instilled hope and helped people in our community — from infancy to advanced age — to access the resources they need to navigate through the cycles and various challenges of life so they can live their best lives.

Wherever there is a need in our community, our United Way is ALWAYS there. For nearly 85 years, we have focused on building a healthier, better Broward County — both now and for future generations.

Our in-house initiatives and more than 130 partner programs have helped create affordable housing, promoted physical and mental well-being, created access to healthy food, provided employment assistance, supported literacy for young children and so much more.

This year’s Mayors’ Gala is a celebration of what our collective power is delivering to people across the entire spectrum of life — from newborns to seniors and every age and every stage of life in between.

There already is a lot of electricity about our most anticipated event of the season. Watch this video where the Gala’s fantastic Co-Chairs Cathy Donnelly of the Castle Group and John Wensveen. Ph. D, chief innovation officer at Nova Southeastern University and executive director at the Alan B. Levan/NSU Broward Center of Innovation, share their excitement about what to expect.

Treat yourself to a night out, wear your red-carpet attire (if you wish), and enjoy a cocktail reception, heavy hors d’oeuvres, epicurean dinner, and a wonderful evening of unique entertainment, live music and dancing.

Plus we’ll have a spirited live auction for exclusive items, including deluxe travel packages. Our silent auction already is underway. And here’s the best part: Anyone can participate — even if you’re not attending this month’s Gala! Click here to make your bid on our silent auction.

Connect with friends, meet new people and take advantage of face-to-face opportunities for networking. It’s a wonderful time for all of us to gather as change-makers for our community.

People who attend the Mayors’ Gala often say they get recharged, energized and inspired — and proceeds raised at the Mayors’ Gala support the people most in need and provide funds to United Way of Broward County’s life-changing programs.
