The Ottawa Hospital Gala, presented by Nordion, will be held on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at the Westin Ottawa – a prestigious event that celebrates our community’s tremendous support for The Ottawa Hospital and includes awards to three of our outstanding, world-class researchers.
Starting with an elegant reception, featuring incredible hors d’oeuvres and custom cocktails, guests will be indulged, inspired and entertained throughout the evening.
Some 600 guests will be treated to Executive Chef Kenton Leier’s gastronomic creations and fine wine, coupled with inspiring stories of this year’s research award recipients. Concluding the evening with chocolate, cheese and aperitifs, the event will continue on to the wee hours with dancing to the fabulous live band “1945” – back by popular demand!
As an added bonus, corporate sponsors will be invited to an exclusive pre-Gala VIP champagne reception at the magnificent Embassy of France and Residence of Ambassador Nicolas Chapuis and Madame Sylvie Camia.
