Seeing Stars at the 5th Annual Gala!

Dancing with Mississauga Stars is our cornerstone event, and the 2017 Gala was a great success!  On November 3rd, our Stars took to the dance floor at the Mississauga Convention Centre after months of preparation for the big night.  This year we celebrated our 5th Annual Dancing With Mississauga Stars, and we did so with all the glitz and glamour that the event is known for as we were treated to excellence in ballroom dance competition.

The Pendle Award for Philanthropy recognizes outstanding contributions to building vitality through support of the Community Foundation. The award’s inaugural year coincided with our tenth anniversary, and there have been some outstanding award recipients to date.  They are Ray Lessard, Tom Cooney, Brad Shoemaker, Robert and Joanne Wordham, Gary Reamey, and Winston Meyer. 

It is with great pleasure that we announce that the 2017 Pendle Award for Philanthropy honoree is Merle Zoerb.  Merle has been a tireless advocate and volunteer for the Community Foundation of Mississauga since before it was formed. He was one of a group of community citizens who were aware of the Community Foundations movement that was sweeping Canada and the value they brought to the lives of those communities.  There were so many reasons that it made sense in Mississauga and along with a handful of early volunteers, Merle helped to establish this Foundation.
