Toronto’s Mayor John Tory is a Long standing supporter of Govfest!
Read his 2019 endorsement letter here to find out all of the wonderful things he’s saying about the work we do at Govfest.
It is my pleasure to once again extend a warm welcome to everyone attending and participating in Govfest 2019.
Govfest, now in its 13th years, continues to be among the largest events organized by employees of the broader Public Sector who donate their talents and time to this annual Festival of Music and Art in support of two worthy charities.
I understand that Govfest 2018 was able to provide the beneficiaries of Govfest, the United Way of Greater Toronto, which supports many of our city’s much needed comunity programs and Ryan’s well Foundation which funds clean drinking water projects around the world, a total of $26,000.00 from the funds it raised. Congratulations on a successful fundraiser.
The volunteers, sponsors, organizers and attendees of Govfest showcase the generosity and community spirit of Torontonians and their commitment to help those less fortunate.
On behalf of Toronto City Council please accept my best wishes for a memorable Govfest 2019, and a continued success in your efforts.
Mayor of Toronto
