Totally different from all other galas in the city!


An Amazing Night Recognizing Ottawa’s Amazing People!

Wasn’t that a party! It was a disco inferno all night long at the Amazing People Gala on October 21, 2017 at the Westin Hotel, celebrating some of Ottawa’s most amazing people. We want to congratulate Stu Schwartz and Consuelo Bernardi for winning the Amazing Person (or persons) of the year award. Their work in the Ottawa community is inspiring to all of us and deserved a night in the spotlight!

In addition to the Amazing Person award, we switched things up a bit and introduced the first ever Inspiration Award. Another big congratulations goes out to Ibrahim Musa for being a leader in our community!

The Amazing People Gala was a massive success and couldn’t have come to fruition without the support of our amazing sponsors, everyone who nominated an amazing person and each of our amazing nominees. The Ottawa community wouldn’t be the same without you!

Be sure to check out the photographs of our amazing night! 100% of the proceeds from each photograph purchased will go towards our chosen charities. And if you missed the gala, don’t worry. Rogers TV was there and captured the entire night! Watch the video here.
