YOUNGSTOWN, OH (WOIO) - Stambaugh Auditorium is the place to be on Jan. 27 when it hosts the 2018 Inaugural Mayor Ball in Youngstown.

The Jamael Tito Brown for Mayor Committee invites you to celebrate the first election of the city's 51st mayor with an evening of entertainment, exceptional food and live music.

In addition to band entertainment, Rufus Blaq will perform his original hit and Mayor Brown's catchy campaign theme song "T.I.T.O", Youngstown's own Voices of Purpose and DJ Darren Perdue. The event is pleased to have a surprise performance by a local group and catering by Alan Donatelli.

"There is no event like it in the area and I want to make it memorable. There are many charities in Mahoning/Trumbull Counties that do not receive adequate assistance because they are small and/or lesser known. We want to be able to help everyone and monies raised at this event will allow us do just that," said Youngstown's first African-American Democratic Mayor Jamael Tito Brown.

The event, which starts at 6 p.m., is expected to sell out.

"We're starting out small. Maybe next year we'll have a theme," added Mayor Brown. "We cannot wait to see how we are going to outdo ourselves this year."

Tickets for the formal event are $75 per person.
