Vassalo & Associates Private Wealth Management is proud to support a range of charities. The diverse list below reflects each team member's commitment to the charity (or charities) of their choice.

Summer Solstice Sip & Taste 

We were happy to sponsor and attend the Summer Solstice Sip & Taste in support of the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation.  The event at Roseville Estate raised over $36,500 to help acquire life-saving equipment, expand clinical services to the community, and continue to develop infrastructure at Cambridge Memorial Hospital.






Vassalo & Associates International Women’s Day Award

Each year for International Women’s Day, we ask clients to nominate someone they feel deserves to be recognized as ‘woman of the year.’ The award comes in the form of a $1,000 donation that Vassalo & Associates makes to the winner’s charity of choice. In 2021, we selected Jennifer as the recipient of the award.

In 2022, we selected Caroline Tanswell as the recipient of the award. Caroline has been an enthusiastic volunteer for the YMCA for close to 40 years, where she took on a wide range of roles from Board support all the way to fitness instructor. When the pandemic closed the YMCA building, Caroline volunteered to pioneer an online class for the YMCA on Facebook. Her passion and positivity have brought together a dedicated following with participants from as far away as Florida and Australia. Now you can once again find Caroline rising at 5:30 am to encourage in-person class participants.

Caroline’s dedication is so great that in 2018, she was recognized for her years of volunteer leadership with the presentation of The Governor General of Canada Sovereign’s Medal. This award has enabled Caroline to preside over Citizenship Courts and welcome new Canadians in her spirited way, even while in an online environment during the pandemic. Caroline’s greatest passion is for her family and to that end she supports her daughter, a front-line worker, and son-in-law by providing them with support wherever needed, be it meals, childcare or assisting with online learning.

In 2021, we selected Jennifer as the recipient of the award.
