MAKE A BUZZ OTTAWA 2018
Make A Buzz Ottawa 2018 planning is well underway, and registration is open. Each year there are sad faces because some of our most passionate supporters wait too long to get their tickets.
This event does sell out and we encourage you to act soon to make sure you don’t miss out. It’s going to be another amazing evening recognizing our own members as well as community partners and individuals who have made significant contributions to an inclusive Ottawa.
WASN’T THAT A PARTY?
Every year on a Friday close to April 1, LiveWorkPlay hosts the Foolish Family Feast. Whenever it lands right on April Fool’s, we enjoy a few jokes and dress for the occasion. Interesting hats are the most popular celebratory apparel.
Because the event also occurs close to World Down Syndrome Day on March 21, a relatively new tradition was established in recent years with Paul Knoll commemorating this important day that symbolizes progress towards more inclusive communities.
Daniel and Paul brought the audience to their feet!
This year Paul invited Daniel Pinsonneault to join him as co-chair, and they opened the feast with a joint statement that was popular not only with attendees, but also with our Facebook and YouTube followers.
This year we had even more fun than usual thanks to the generosity of Greg Madore, Andy MacEwan, Jason Waldorf, and Marty Vallieres the band members of Chicken Fried! They volunteered their talents and time with 90 straight minutes of spirited tunes. It was a lot of country and a little bit of rock ‘n’ roll, and the dance floor was jumping!
Thanks to the great team at St. Anthony’s Banquet Hall, dinner service for 150 went smoothly, and it was delicious too! Special thanks to all of our members, families, volunteers, and staff for sharing your community spirit! See you on May 10 for Make A Buzz Ottawa 2018!
