Stars in Stilettos' is an annual Christmas Holiday Event. Every November, the business women in Caledon and the surrounding area get together to celebrate the season.
As strong dedicated women working together in Caledon, there is an opportunity this year to develop even stronger ties to our home town.
This year, the Caledon Chamber of Commerce and the committee members with the Stars in Stilettos' Holiday Gala have decided to create a legacy to fundraise for the benefit of a brand new scholarship fund dedicated to assist Caledon students on their educational journey.
Why should businesses become involved in these educational issues? This is in the enlightened long-run self-interest of the business community to do so. If we want higher rates of broad-based economic growth in this country, which will help support the prosperity of many businesses, we need to increase our labour force skills. This can be most effectively done through increasing investments in the early development of skills, and then later on focusing that skills development around career relevant skills.
Your donation this year will be two-fold; it will support your local Chamber of Commerce continue its mandate as well as support the development of a scholarship plan. Together, we can make a difference.
