Dancing With Mississauga Stars 2015

We raised over $125,000 for The Community Foundation of Mississauga.

This year five stars have accepted the challenge to raise essential funds for the Foundation while learning one ballroom dance. They performed their chosen dance in front of the audience on gala night. These brave stars were Tim Beckett, Fire Chief of Mississauga; Lauren Bernardi, Principal, Bernardi Human Resource Law; Dorothy Guerra, Owner Birth Yoga Studio, Susanne Seelig-Mense, Partner The Wine Ladies; and Cliff Silveira, Director of Operations, Mississauga Convention Centre.

For complete information on the event and information about The Community Foundation of Mississauga.

All Community Foundations share three roles. We;

  • bring donors to the table as community builders, and help them formulate and realize their philanthropic goals, matching their interests and concerns with community needs and organizations, and finding innovative and responsible ways to give their investments lasting impact.
  • take the broadest view of what a community is and what it needs to succeed. This is why our grants support everything from shelter, sustenance and care for those most in need, to recreation, the arts, and the environment.
  • take the long-term view for our communities: we identify long-term needs and opportunities and invest in sustainable solutions, helping our communities become resilient, resourceful, and ready for the future they want.

Community foundations work with donors to create their charitable legacy. No matter the gift size, our donors know they are helping to create a permanent endowment for the community, with the investment earnings distributed to the broadest range of charitable initiatives in the community.

A Community Foundation is not the object of a donor’s philanthropy but rather seeks to provide donors with the information, resources and tools to accomplish their charitable goals.

Each Community Foundation is autonomous and governed by a Board of Directors made up of community-minded leadership. Yet, they are linked and supported by Community Foundations of Canada’s strong national network; www.communityfoundations.ca.

The Colossal Failure of the Modern Relationship

Wine and romance are both uncorked in this delightful journey into Niagara’s spectacular wine country. The film was shot in various locations, including several wineries, a B&B and a restaurant–keep your eyes open to spot the locale–and employed dozens of local cast and crew. The film celebrates the region while not glossing over the work required keeping a relationship strong. While Niagara Falls has enjoyed the moniker “Honeymoon Capital of the World” since the early 1900s, amour seems trickier for the couples in The Colossal Failure of the Modern Relationship. Love in the new millennium is harder to balance—how do you keep a fine vintage relationship from turning to plonk? – Kate Yorga

Narrated by Russell Crowe, Red Obsession offers an in-depth documentary investigation of a prized global commodity in times of enormous economic change, and an intoxicating meditation on its enduring mystique and allure. 

Coveted by oenophiles worldwide, the wines of France’s Bordeaux region have been legendary for centuries. Though having long endured the vagaries of climate, the winemakers of Bordeaux now find themselves subjected to another tempestuous, uncontrollable force: the massive sea change in the global financial markets, which has seen the cash-strapped West — long the primary export market for Bordeaux — superseded by China, whose insatiable thirst for the illustrious vintage has turned the wine market on its head.

Red Obsessionopens at TIFF Bell Lightbox on Friday, September 27, 2013.
