In the Community

La Rose has grown with the Milton community over the past 33 years.

  • To say thank you to our community and fellow Miltonians, La Rose supports various community charity events throughout the year.

    We are dedicated to help actualize the expansion of the Milton District Hospital.
    We have supported the Milton District Hospital since La Rose’s inception. Over the years, through barbecues and gala celebrations, we have raised over $100,000.00 for the hospital. We continue to support various fundraising events held by the Milton District Hospital Foundation and are proud supporters of our local hospital.

    We also support the Townsend Smith Foundation to build a hospice facility in North Halton.
    Our support began in 2011, with the first annual Italiafest hosted here in the La Rose parking lot. La Rose holds Italiafest every June in support of the Townsend Smith Foundation, and we look forward to continuing this annual tradition to help build a hospice facility in our community. To date, we’ve raised over $10,000.00 in support of the Townsend Smith Foundation.

    We are active in our community and you will always find some La Rose family members and employees at the annual Milton Good Neighbours Day (Milton’s community clean up day). We are proud of Milton, and are proud to be a part of this community – we want to help keep it beautiful.

    We are proud sponsors of the annual Mayor’s Gala for the Milton Centre for the Arts. We provide dessert to for the annual function that raises funds for arts programs in Milton.

    Besides these major contributions, La Rose donates regularly to many charitable events held in Milton, and supports local Milton independent businesses.
