In support of the Fort McMurray relief efforts, I would like to invite you all to a fundraising event taking place on Wednesday, June 8 at the Aberdeen Pavilion. Ottawa4FortMac will feature an evening of live country music, a pizza dinner catered by local pizzerias, local craft beer sampling and western-themed activities such as wild mechanical bull rides.
Tickets will be available for purchase early next week. Please follow #ottawa4fortmac for more details.
In lieu of these tragic events, this is a wonderful chance to support one another as Canadians in a time of need. It is moments like these that bring us together and show the world that what it means to be Canadian is not simply where we live, but how we respond when others are in need.
I encourage all residents to assist in this tragic time and join us in helping those who have been affected by the Fort McMurray fires.
When: Wednesday, June 8
Where: The Aberdeen Pavilion,
1000 Exhibition Way
