Community Rocks 2018 returns to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto on Saturday November 10, 2018 at 6 p.m. The flagship fundraising event for Community Living Toronto will feature a live performance by the Sam Roberts Band and will be hosted by Ben Mulroney, co-host of CTV’s program, Your Morning, and eTalk. We’re giving away two tickets to Community Rocks 2018…see giveaway details below.
This year’s Community Rocks event features a disco theme, so dig deep in your parents’ basement for their sparkly gold, wide-legged pants, jewel-toned dresses with swirl-tastic skirts, Saturday Night Fever suits and platform shoes and do your hair big and curly. Check out this disco dance clothing here for inspiration.
If you don’t feel up to dressing disco-style, clothing such as jeans, pants and a jacket are perfectly acceptable.
There will also be a 50/50 draw and items for sale, which can be purchased using credit cards, debit cards and cash.
The evening will begin with a cocktail party at 6 p.m. The concert will end around 10:30 p.m., after which the after party begins. Community Rocks 2018 will wrap up after midnight.
If you’re not familiar with Community Living Toronto, the organization was established in 1948 as a means of providing alternative solutions to placing adults and children with intellectual disabilities in an institution.

Community Living Toronto helps individuals reach their dreams, whether that is living alone or with a roommate, working in a supported environment or participating in community activities.
