Increasing Public Awareness Through Community Events

Through our fundraising efforts, we increase public awareness and are able to provide additional opportunities to people who are beyond the scope of provincial funding.

Our fundraising initiatives support the following:

George Davidson Family Resource Fund

This fund was created in the memory of George Davidson, a founding pioneer of the community living movement in Dundas County.

As a long-standing member of the Board of Directors of our agency, George was an advocate for families, as well as for his own daughter, Susan. In his memory, his wife, Barb, graciously donated seed money to set up the George Davidson Family Resource Fund.

The objective of this fund is to provide opportunities for:

  • Training
  • Resource materials
  • Respite
  • Bursaries
  • Critical need

Transportation

As Community Living Dundas County is located in a rural community, transportation is a serious issue for our agency.

This fund was set up to purchase vehicles in order to provide access for individuals we support to attend medical appointments, to complete shopping, visit friends and family, and participate in their community.

Snoezelen Room

Community Living Dundas County’s Snoezelen Room is a relaxing space that helps reduce agitation and anxiety, stimulates primary senses, encourages communication, and also engages and delights the user. It is open to the public by appointment.

Funds raised support updating and maintaining the Snoezelen equipment.

Our fundraising team is always seeking new ideas and assistance with planning special events.

Your gift, bequest, and in memoriam donation will support our efforts, and we will provide a taxable receipt as we are a charitable organization. Make your donation today.

Ladies Night Out

Our most anticipated fundraiser of the year is Ladies Night Out.

Occurring every October since 2007, this wildly popular event is the inspiration of retired Executive Assistant, Marlene Lewis.

This event at Matilda Hall combines fashion shows, local vendor shopping, and a delightful wine bar with light snacks served at your tables by our well-dressed volunteers.

We add to the excitement of the evening with a robust silent auction and a charity lottery with three major prizes.

Annual Golf Tournament

You will love our Annual Golf Tournament that happens the first Friday in June. A great day on the green is wrapped up with a delicious BBQ.

Join us as a golfer and sponsor!
