Amazing People Gala – Disco Inferno!
August 21, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
This is totally different from all other galas in the city! At the 4th Amazing People Gala, fun is the name of this evening. Proudly sponsored by Accora Village, at this Disco Inferno theme event, we encourage you to dust off your groovy powder blue tux & splashy cocktail dress….then get ready to rip up the dance floor! We kick off the evening with a VIP Reception where we roll out the red carpet for you to mix, meet & mingle with the Amazing People nominees. There will be live performances throughout dinner then, we will stop the disco ball to shine the spotlight on 40 Amazing People who have been nominated for the incredible work that they do in our community. Often their impact flies under the radar….not tonight as this gala shines the spotlight on them all night long. Ottawa is full of Amazing People! We’ve honoured over 120 Amazing People so far and we are now taking nominations. At the gala, one person will be named the Amazing Person the Year as selected by our panel of judges. It’s an Amazing Night! We are thrilled that former Governor General Michaelle Jean and her husband Jean-Daniel Lafond will attend. They will be speaking about the Michaelle Jean Foundation’s major national initiative to promote diversity among 5 million Canadian young people in collaboration with 100 of Canada’s leading women. This Gala is not to be missed. It is a tremendous networking opportunity with community minded people from all corners of our city. And you will be touched by the personal stories of the 40 Amazing People we will honour that evening. Over $200,000 has already been raised at the gala for the charities that Amazing People supports. This special evening will raise funds for Amazing People’s charities of choice: HERA Mission of Canada, Michaëlle Jean Foundation, Project North, and SchoolBOX.
