The public is invited to attend the gala, but there will be a price at the door. General admission tickets are going for $125 and a private champagne ceremony with the mayor “and other honored guests” will run you $300.

The party kicks off at 7 p.m. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy – Stamford’s mayor for 14 years — and U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal are confirmed guests, according to Martin’s office.
