Dear Supporter,

Mayor and I want to share our gratitude with you and everyone who has been so generous over the past seven years. You have allowed the Mayor and First Lady's Charity Gala to net over $1.3 million dollars to help dozens of fantastic local not-for-profit organizations, who have in turn lifted up over 100,000 of our friends and neighbors who are in need of a helping hand. Your leadership is literally changing lives for the better.

This year, for our farewell Charity Gala as your Mayor and First Lady, we are once again asking for your support. This year's gala recipients focus on economic mobility. They include Crossroads for Women, National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI NM) & Albuquerque Community Foundation (The Bright Futures Fund).

This year marks the eighth and final gala as your Mayor and First Lady, which will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017. Information on sponsorships, tickets and tables is available at or (505) 266-3451. We hope you can join us as we come together to make our community an even better place for everyone.

With gratitude,

Maria E. Berry

First Lady of Albuquerque
