Flato Home for the Holidays Gala ’18


21st Annual Gala in support of Caledon Community Services December 1, 2018

Message from the Director of Communications and Development 

Dear Local Businesses, Retailers and Guests;

It has been our pleasure to host the annual Caledon Community Services (CCS) re-envisioned Gala in 2016 and again in 2017. A team of incredible volunteers create magic in a few short months for all our guests to enjoy!  This evening has truly become one of the must-attend events of the holiday season within our community, Caledon, and we are grateful!

This Gala celebration has been built on a powerful and storied history of the warmth of the Caledon community as it was first held twenty-one years ago in the home of a community advocate and builder. In each of the past two years we have strived to achieve this same warmth and we’re excited about the plans for the 2018 Flato Home for the Holidays Gala. We’re truly honoured that so many talented and dedicated individuals, both new and returning volunteers have chosen to grace us with their support once again.

For forty-seven years you’ve made life better for thousands and thousands of Caledon residents in need, fed more children and pets than imagination can envision through your support of CCS, and helped raise happy, productive and contributing members of society.  A great reason to rejoice.

Come and enjoy an evening of community celebration.  Join in this ‘sold out’ event. The madly popular signature ‘Celebration of Trees’ is returning by popular demand.

Our goal is to deliver a wonderful experience that you won’t want to miss, one that you’ll remember with joy for a long time to come!

Your presence and support of this event mean the world to us and we look forward to celebrating with you on December 1, 2018.

Warm regards,

Donna Cragg
Director of Communications and Development,
