Villa Colombo Toronto opened its doors in 1976 and involved one of the largest cooperative community efforts in the history of Italian-Canadians. In that year, the Villa Colombo Ladies’ Auxiliary, now operating as the Villa Colombo Toronto Auxiliary (VCTA), was founded with a purpose of benevolent volunteerism in support of the home and its valued residents. The VCTA is comprised of committed individuals who dedicate their time and efforts towards creating special fundraising events, operating/managing the Villa Colombo Toronto Gift Shop, promoting community awareness for the Villa, and assisting in promoting our rich Italian heritage as part of Canada’s multicultural environment.
The VCTA is very proud of its substantial contribution to Villa Colombo Toronto. Through decades of dedication and commitment, the VCTA has raised millions of dollars to support projects and services that benefit and enhance the lives of Villa Colombo Toronto’s valued residents.
The VCTA is pleased to hold numerous events and donation campaigns each year, relying on its supporters and sponsors to raise significant funds for Villa Colombo Toronto. Examples of past fundraising initiatives include concerts, donation campaigns, dinner dances, fashion shows, golf tournaments, pasta/pizza bingo nights, and rummage sales. Throughout the years, the VCTA has used funds raised to sponsor and/or purchase the following, all for the benefit of the residents at Villa Colombo Toronto: art therapy room and supplies; dining room and recreation room chairs; dinnerware; feeding stools; landscaping of a therapeutic garden; MenuStream system; palliative care support baskets; resident beds; resident Christmas gifts/parties; sneeze guards for congregate dining rooms; sunrooms; patio furniture for the Villa garden; and window shades.
