Evening in the Maritimes – Where Good Food Meets a Good Cause for a Great Time!
The 26th edition of Evening in the Maritimes was a great success! Together we raised $209,100 to support people of all ages across the disability spectrum and their families to build lives of meaning and joy as valued members of our city.
This year’s event was an evening to remember, and the crowd participation was overwhelmingly supportive. Guests enjoyed great food and drinks provided by the Westin Ottawa, traditional entertainment from the Ramblin’ Fiddlers, Ottawa Police Band and McDonald Highland Dancers. The fun continued with an exciting live auction featuring exclusive getaway locations, a silent auction with eclectic items and our new sea creature sweepstakes with fabulous prizes.
Our 400+ guests included ABLE2 Board members, individuals we support, Senators, ambassadors, and well-known and respected members of the Ottawa community including business leaders. Corporate partners purchased 73% of the tickets sold and approximately 50% of our guests return year after year.
