Point Fortin Mayor revitalises tradition of the Mayor’s Ball Charity Event

The Mayor of Point Fortin will host the first of The Mayor’s signature, charitable events, The Mayor’s Ball this Saturday 20th April, 2024.

This comes as excitement builds for the upcoming Point Fortin Borough Celebrations 2024.

At the highly anticipated gala affair, members of Trinidad and Tobago’s business and corporate sectors, civil society, political fraternity, government, philanthropic communities and diaspora are invited to join His Worship The Mayor, Alderman Clyde James for an evening of elegance at the Clifton Hill Beach Resort. The event will benefit the humanitarian and philanthropic endeavours of The Office of the Mayor.

The borough’s newly appointed Mayor and seasoned businessman, James, is keenly focused on growing the borough of Point Fortin and improving the lives of the town’s burgesses.

A critical element of The Mayor’s vision is his dedication and engagement in charitable projects and initiatives that aim to make the borough a better place for all. To this end, The Mayor has revitalised the tradition of the annual Mayor’s Ball alongside the popular Mayor’s Premium All-Inclusive event as he strives to raise awareness for his altruistic initiatives in his hometown of Point Fortin.

In reflecting on his current term in office, The Mayor shared, “I am grateful and humbled to have this opportunity to serve my community as The Mayor of one of the most vibrant and culturally rich towns in our nation. It is my sincere wish to contribute to making life more happy, comfortable and enriching for the people of Point Fortin as I focus on initiatives designed to elevate the social and economic well-being of all in our community. It is indeed an honour to serve.”

Patrons will be treated to an evening of dinner and dancing under the stars with live entertainment led by award-winning pianist, composer and producer, Dr. Louis Nurse, and his innovative soca jazz band, Louis and the Lynx.

On the turntables will be veteran DJs, DJ Nigel and Alpha B. With a contribution of $750, the formal soirée offers an all-inclusive dinner from 8:00 p.m. or with a smaller contribution of $300, a drinks-inclusive experience from 9:30 p.m.

All proceeds from the ball will benefit The Mayor’s Fund which finances The Mayor’s assistance and support of burgesses in need, as well as his charitable projects and initiatives. In the past, civil society organisations that benefitted from The Mayor’s support and work included Ferndean’s Place Children’s Home for abused children, the substance abuse treatment centre, Serenity Place Empowerment Centre for Women, Mc Sween’s Home for the Elderly and Disabled, and the non-profit arts organisation, Back Ah Yard Foundation.
