We’ve been hosting the Tribute Dinner for almost 40 years and we have raised over $4 million.

Our small dinner has grown into a must-attend gala that is the highlight of the Mississauga community social calendar.

While the format and number of attendees has changed over the years, our goal for the Tribute Dinner has not – to honour a community leader, host a fun and entertaining night out and raise funds for the Community Living Mississauga Foundation.
