The Organizing Committee would like to send a great big THANK YOU! to everyone who supported Bows For Butterflies 2013 by donating or coming out to the event. It was a resounding success !!
The evening began with a mental health information fair featuring five community service groups from the Ottawa area, and a spectacular silent auction. This was followed by inspiring addresses by Senator Vernon White; youth spokesperson Jonah Poplove; uOttawa representative Murray Sang; and Bows for Butterflies Chair Raija Hilska; And to top off a simply magnificent evening, the audience was treated to stunning musical performance by the David Curry and the University of Ottawa Orchestra. See below for pictures from the Benefit. Coming soon will be a brief video with some highlights from the event.
…And the tally? Thanks to you, Bows For Butterflies 2013 succeeded at raising more than $8,000!! A donation of $5,000 will be made in the coming weeks to the Royal Ottawa Health Centre Foundation to support youth mental health programs and $3,000 to the University of Ottawa to support their student music scholarship program has already been made.
Thanks again for your support and we hope to see you next year!
