HOP ON OVER TO IRELAND HOUSE MUSEUM for a fun-filled day with The Rocca Sisters featuring an Easter egg hunt and visits with the Easter bunny!
One of the ways The Rocca Sisters Team thanks our community is by providing free admission to the Sp’EGG’tacular Easter Event, which will be taking place this upcoming Saturday, March 24th from 11am – 3:00pm at Ireland House Museum on Oakridge Farm.
“The Rocca Sisters Team are all about family and creating traditions, and this event is a perfect fit!” Cathy Rocca explains, “Ireland House Museum is a local treasure with wonderful educational programs and an incredible historic collection. We invite everyone to bring their best Easter basket and come out to this free event. Donations are encouraged to help the Museums of Burlington continue to provide children’s programs and maintain their collection.”
The possibilities are endless at the Sp’EGG’tacular Easter Event. Visit The Rocca Sisters tent for some amazing give-aways! “There’s just so much to see and do, including crafts, face painting, vendor market, silent auction and of course traditional tours of Ireland House Museum,” says Tanya Rocca.
Back by popular demand, the Egg Hunt will take place throughout the event. “The Museum has taken extra steps to make the egg hunt enjoyable for all children. Each child gathers three eggs of the same colour, which they redeem for a ticket to get a treat bag. There are no bonus prizes for more eggs. The coveted golden egg is redeemable for a special prize,” explains Tanya. We wonder are they obscured by bushes, up in a tree, under some rocks, no one will tell! But what we do know, is that the prizes are terrific!
The Rocca Sisters kicks off the Easter Egg Hunt at 11:00am!

International Women’s Day took place on Thursday, March 8th and is focused on inspiring women around the world and celebrating their economic, political and social achievements, as well as focusing world attention on areas that still require further action. We wanted to reach out and recognize all the incredible, hardworking women in our community.
Each year, a theme is picked by the United Nations. This year, the theme is #PressforProgress.
With the recent Hollywood film industry scandal and World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap Reportfindings telling us that gender parity is over 200 years away – there has never been a more important time to keep motivated and #PressforProgress. We are lucky to live in a community where strong leadership by women is accepted and celebrated. As two nationally top-ranked sales representatives, we support any woman striving to achieve their goals and trying to make a difference. And when you do achieve success, it is also just as important to give back to the community that helped you, and lend a hand to others who need it.
We would personally like to share our appreciation and respect for our mother, Joan Rocca, who impacted our lives in ways words could never express. She was a strong loving woman and she made us into who we are today, instilling in us the passion to strive for the top. Our mother passed away from Ovarian Cancer in 2009. Since then, we have celebrated her and carried on her memory through various Ovarian Cancer projects throughout the community to help give support to other women suffering from the disease. Our mother was an incredible woman and she continues to make an impact in our lives each and every day.
We are very fortunate to live in a country where there are no restrictions to what women can do, or what we can achieve. We invite you to reach out to the special women in your life who have made an impact on you, and make your appreciation known!
One of the most important parts of our mission here at The Rocca Sisters Team is social responsibility. We acknowledge that the greater our success the greater our ability to make positive change in our world. We also focus on giving back to our community by enthusiastically participating in community based awareness and fundraising activities that result in a significant contribution to the overall quality of life of our friends, neighbours and colleagues.
Bullying is a major problem in our schools, workplaces, homes, and online. Over the month of February, and throughout the year, CKNW Kids’ Fund’s Pink Shirt Day aims to raise awareness of these issues, as well as raise funds to support programs that foster children’s healthy self-esteem.
With four small children in the beginning years of their schooling, Cathy and Tanya Rocca realize the value of raising awareness of these issues and hold them close to their hearts.
“All kids are entitled to happy childhood and we need to teach kids from a young age that we are all created equal.” says Tanya Rocca.
This year, The Rocca Sisters team showed our support by dressing our entire office in pink!
As the Pink Shirt Day movement grows each year, we not only see more and more people practicing kindness – both online and off. The organization is pleased to use the funds raised through official merchandise sales and donations to help hundreds of kids affected by bullying. Since 2008, net proceeds of over $1.8 million have been distributed to support youth anti-bullying programs in British Columbia and throughout Western Canada. In 2017 alone, they were able to support programs that impacted more than 59,300 youth and children.(www.pinkshirtday.ca)
We want to say a big thank you to everyone in our community who along with The Rocca Sisters Team took part supporting Pink Shirt Day and raising awareness!
