Put on your spats, suspenders and get ready to dance the Charleston: the 2022 Mayor’s Gala will be held Saturday, Sept. 17, 2022 at Campus Park at City Center.

Annually the Mayor’s Gala is the premier event held to raise funds for grants to local nonprofits in our community.

Proceeds from donations, sponsorships and auction sales are sourced to provide funding for grants each year.

This year’s Grant Recipients will be announced in May.

Total grants awarded this year is $40,000.

The Rio Rancho Community Foundation is a primary source for philanthropy within Sandoval County.  The foundation connects people, non-profits and resources to benefit all within the region.

“We work with non-profits and philanthropists to raise money so that organizations have the resources to make an impact in our community,” the foundation said in a press release.
