The 22nd Annual Mayor’s Ball hosted by the honorable Daniella Levine Cava will take place on Saturday, June 17 at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami.

Our focus this year doubles-down on my promise to unite Miami-Dade and bring leaders from all levels of government together to problem-solve and deliver for our community.”
