On December 3, 2016, Community Living Toronto held Community Rocks 2016, their 5th semi-annual fundraiser celebrating individuals with an intellectual disability at the jazzy the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.  It was celebrated on the United Nations “International day of Persons with Disabilities”. This Mardi Gras themed event featured a cocktail reception of tasty food inspired by New Orleans’ culinary tradition, live entertainment including Sam Roberts Band, the Happy Pals, and an after party with DJ Raptor Marc.  It was hosted by Ben Mulroney.  It was a great event for a very worthy cause – raising $ 600,000 for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
