The 2017 Daffodil Gala is raising money in support of Rosalina Bedynski-Belli (here’s her story) and the Canadian Cancer Society – Neuroblastoma Research.

The Daffodil Gala’s goal is to collect $25,000 this year!

So, what’s on for this year? One of Ottawa’s longest running cancer research fund raising events will be held at St. Anthony’s Italia Banquet Hall. We can guarantee a lively and fun night with two exciting Master of Ceremonies sharing the microphone. We have Derick Fage host of Breakfast Television Montreal on City TV and Ottawa’s own Wendy Daniels, weekdays host on boom 99.7.

There will be many hotly contested Silent Auctions for a wide variety of gifts, raffles for some great electronics and our Guaranteed Raffle is always sold out, so you will need to be quick on your feet that night. After dinner there will also be a live auction to keep things really interesting.

Joe Ierullo and his great staff at St. Anthony’s will be starting the evening with a variety cocktails and hors d’oeuvres leading into a traditional and always delicious five course Italian dinner at our licensed event. There is complimentary wine at each table and a cash bar that will be open throughout the evening. You just need to show up with an appetite and determination to win some of those great auction prizes. We also have Giovanni as our official photographer so you can expect great pictures. Remember to smile! For a little more fun with pictures, we’ll have photo booth setup during cocktails.

The evening’s entertainment starts off music by Shawn Marino, Ottawa’s own “Lounge Singer/Crooner” and we end the evening with the announcement of our grand total for the year and then you can look forward to a great night of dancing and music provided by Ottawa’s own Sway BandDecoration is once again provided by Rachel and Serge at Mariage GDS.
