Phoenix Sister Cities, Inc. and Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton will host the first Mayor’s International Gala on April 3 at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel, 340 N. Third St. The reception is from 6 to 7 p.m. and dinner from 7 to 9 p.m.

Sponsored by Arizona State University, the event will celebrate the city’s cultural diversity and support Phoenix Sister Cities programs. The evening will feature international cuisine, live entertainment and a silent auction. Stanton also will present the first city of Phoenix Global Citizens Award to a resident for his or her outstanding contributions to international relations.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Phoenix Sister Cities’ programs, which include international business relations and youth exchanges with the city’s 10 sister cities.

“Phoenix Sister Cities is a powerful global network for our city,” Stanton said. “It opens the doors for international access, opportunities, and resources for both local businesses and our residents. This event celebrates our diversity and helps ensure that Phoenix Sister Cities can continue to bring our city a rich variety of cultural, economic and educational programs in the future.”
