‘Gatsby’ event raises nearly $60,000 for food bank

Carolyn and David ParrishCarolyn Parrish’s 2014 fundraiser, ‘An Evening with Gatsby’, raised nearly $60,000 for the Mississauga Food Bank.

The original goal – to raise enough money to maintain the food bank’s milk program for another year – was toppled. The extra money raised will be used to purchase fresh vegetables for families across Mississauga who rely on the food bank.

Guests were decked out in their finest 20s garb when they gathered at the Holcim Waterfront Estate for an evening of incredible entertainment by the Toronto All Star Big Band. Antique cars lined the driveway to the estate, setting the scene for an unforgettable evening.

A live auction, hosted by Mike Bullard, raised even more for the food bank. Auction items included dinner at home prepared by Councillor Carlson and Councillor Iannica, and a dinner package at Mondello Ristorante. The evening wrapped up with a fireworks display that lit up the sky over Lake Ontario.

Jamboree fundraiser starts Milk Fund for food bank

Carolyn Parrish and Chris Hatch, executive director of the Mississauga Food BankCarolyn Parrish’s ‘Grand Ole Jamboree’ raised more than $30,000 for the Mississauga Food Bank – that’s enough to double the amount of fresh milk the food bank distributes to its clients across the city.

Guests enjoyed great country tunes and delicious food at the beautiful Riverwood Conservancy, all for a great cause.

“Young children require milk to develop into healthy adults,” says Carolyn. “My grandkids go through several litres a day without the restrictions poverty would impose.”

Food bank clients had been requesting more fresh milk for their families. Before Carolyn started the Milk Fund they received one litre of milk per month.

“Food bank client families will now receive at least twice as much milk at their monthly visit,” says Chris Hatch, executive director of the Mississauga Food Bank. “Giving our clients better access to nutritious food like milk makes a big difference to their health and quality of life, especially for children. We’re very grateful to Carolyn Parrish and the generous donors who made this possible.”

Rabba Fine Foods supplies the extra milk to the food bank at cost. Mattamy Homes, Precise ParkLink, Cold Stone Creamery, Rotary Meadowvale, Paradise Homes, Direct Nissan, Sam McDadi Real Estate and Al-Farooq Mosque were sponsors of the event.

Food Bank Concert Congratulations!

Mary Sheridan, Precise Park Link, Lead Sponsor


“I hope it’s hours before you get to this email, as you truly do deserve a rest after all you accomplished last evening.  Such an amazing success, and we were thrilled to have been a part of it.  All 5 of us on hand from Purolator enjoyed an exceptional evening, and were honoured to have done it for such a great cause.  Please keep us in mind as you turn your minds to a second annual – we would be pleased to be a part of such a great burgeoning tradition.  Rest up, and enjoy the glow.”

Sarah Hamza, Director, Public Affairs, Purolator Inc.


“Good morning Carolyn, hope you are alive and well after all your great work in organizing such a spectacular event.  Kudos to you and all the people who helped you.  You once again have proven to many people that you are truly ‘One of a Kind’ when it comes to doing what you say you will do and making everything you put your heart and soul into an outstanding success.  I am sure this will also prove to be true in Ward 5 as well.  Mississauga needs you back on Council as a voice of reason and probably the one person who can guide our great City with honesty and integrity for years to come.  You have always told the truth and have stuck by your principles no matter what the consequences.”

Article: Event A Great Success

July 5, 2011

It’s easy to kick somebody when they’re down.

And, in the case of former Ward 6 Councillor Carolyn Parrish, it would have been easy for her to walk away from public service after suffering a humbling defeat in last October’s municipal election.

But, after allowing herself sufficient time to dry her tears, collect her thoughts and pick herself up by the bootstraps, Parrish is back in a big way.

One day after confirming that she’ll throw her hat into the proverbial ring to run in September’s Ward 5 by-election, Parrish will step back into the civic spotlight – literally.  She’ll be at centre stage in Hammerson Hall tomorrow night at the first-ever Mississauga Food Bank Concert.

Parrish was the driving force behind the rockin’ fundraiser that will also celebrate the food bank’s 25th anniversary.

She has arranged a stellar line-up of homegrown Mississauga talent that includes former Triumph guitar god Rik Emmett.  Also on the bill are operatic tenor Michael Ciufo, jazz vocalist Carol McCartney, bluesman Chuck Jackson, rocker Suzie McNeil and country singer Marshall Dane.  Comedian Mike Bullard will act as master of ceremonies.

More than 1,000 tickets, ranging in price from $50 – $150, have been sold.  That’s thanks in large part to the organizer’s ability to both sweet talk and twist arms.  For weeks, she has worked the phones and called in favours.

The end result is a great event that will support a worthy cause.

Credit where credit is due, we say.  Great job, Carolyn!
