On November 1, 2018, we’ll be participating in the Dollars for Stem Cells Fundraising Dinner for the Ottawa Hospital.
This is no ordinary charity dinner: it’s a gourmet dining experience with 3 featured chefs, international flavours, and a lot of fun.
It is organized each year by a large group of amazing people, including our honorary chair Tina Boileau. Tina is the mother of Jonathan Pitre, The Butterfly Boy who had such a loving impact on our city.
