Evening in the Maritimes – Where Good Food Meets a Good Cause for a Great Time!


Immerse yourself in a typical east coast experience on May 19, 2022 at ABLE2’s authentic east coast kitchen party that brings together Ottawa-Gatineau for a fun night filled with fresh lobster, lively east coast music & dancing, a chance to take home amazing gifts and prizes from our sponsors, while raising money to help enhance the quality of life of people living with disabilities.

This unique event is a sell-out every year bringing together hundreds of high-profile guests from many sectors, including the most prominent business, medical, political, government, diplomatic and community leaders, media, and prestigious social figures in Ottawa/Gatineau.

Over the last 25 years, Evening in the Maritimes guests and sponsors have helped to raise $3M to support ABLE2’s programs and resources. We count on our event attendees, donors and sponsors to support our mission to provide the tools, choices and connections that empower people with disabilities to build lives of meaning and joy.

We looking forward to SEAing you all again at EiTM22 on May 19th at the Westin Ottawa Hotel. All aboard for Evening in the Maritimes!
