One of Stratford’s most popular social events of the year is coming up this weekend.

It’s the fifth annual Stratford Perth Community Foundation Mayors’ Gala.

Stratford Mayor Dan Mathieson tells us what the idea behind the Gala is:

All the proceeds from the Mayor’s Gala will go towards the operation of the Stratford Perth Community Foundation.

The SPCF will be giving out over $100,000 this year to more than 40 community groups.

A few tickets for the Gala are still available, and can be purchased online at www.spccf.ca.

The Mayor’s Gala is set for Saturday at the University of Waterloo Stratford Campus at 7:30 p.m.
