Have you ever wondered what it would like to be spy or a secret agent? Do you like getting dressed up for an evening of fun, entertainment and raising money for a good cause? Well then, if you’re going to be in the Ottawa area on April 26th, get your outfit in order for the 2014 Ottawa Gala – Spies and Dolls at the Canadian War Museum from 8 PM – 11PM!
What is the Ottawa Gala?
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Ottawa Gala, I’ll tell you all about it. The Ottawa Gala is an annual event put on by the Fund for a New Generation (FNG) in order to raise money for youth initiatives in the city of Ottawa. So far, FNG has raised over $700 000 since its inception in 1993. The event is put together by young professionals who are apart of Ottawa’s private, public and universities sectors that are dedicated to raising funds for various organizations around Ottawa.
What Makes This Event So Special?
I became a supporter of FNG after finding out about the different organizations they have supported across the city of Ottawa. FNG supports organizations for younger and older children. The groups FNG supports each year changes, too, so many more children in Ottawa are helped.
The group that FNG assists that influenced me to want to get involved and help raise money for FNG was the Ottawa School Breakfast Program. Not only does this group help children who need breakfast have one before they start their school day, but it is available at all levels of schools around Ottawa, so younger and older children benefit from the support the Ottawa School Breakfast Program provides. Since I know some of the children who use this program, I felt that I should help to try to do my part to help this program give to the children it supports.

How Can You Show Your Support to the Ottawa Gala?
The best way to support FNG would be to attend this year’s Gala on April 26, 2014! This is the 21st year that the Gala has been put together to raise funds for youth initiatives in Ottawa. This year’s theme is Spies and Dolls. Pull out your suit, trench coat, dress, or hat and spend a fabulous evening filled with entertainment provided by Hot 89.9, DJ ACRO and the Hornettes, a silent auction, and prize envelopes you can purchase to raise more money for children in Ottawa! You’ll have fun dancing, meeting new people, and helping children across Ottawa. (This is a 19+ event, for those inquiring minds).
There are two sets of ticket prices for this year’s event:
General Admission – $65
This ticket allows you into the event, to explore different rooms set up for dancing and entertainment and a lot of fun!
VIP Admission – $115
This ticket grants you exclusive access between 8:00 PM and 11:00 PM to enjoy a complementary bar, upgraded catering and a separate entertaining area from those in the General Admission area!
Below are some photos, courtesy of the Ottawa Gala, of all of the fun had at last year’s event, The Roaring 20’s, to celebrate the 20th year the Gala has been one of Ottawa’s ultimate go-to events!
So, if you want to have a good time this weekend, get all dolled up, and raise money for children in the city of Ottawa, why not attend the Ottawa Gala! I hope to see you there!
I have not been compensated in any way to write this post. I have had a hand in helping to plan this year’s event, and all of my opinions are honest and my own.
