Enjoy some of the popular segments from the LiveWorkPlay 26th Anniversary celebration, Make A Buzz Ottawa 2021 (May 6). In addition to awards, music, and comedy, we raised more than $5000 with our online auction and received a matching donation of $5000 via our longtime friends at Pylon Electronics. Thank you to all the generous donors and bidders! This has been a very unusual year with many challenges, but it has also taught us about the value of our community and that “in this together” is much more than a slogan. We have lived it! We have cared for each other and gone above and beyond to help not only just the people closest to us, but people who we didn’t know very well, but they needed us and we showed up. In many ways, 2020-2021 brought out the best in all of us. But don’t worry, we are all looking forward to seeing you again in person this fall.
Some of our partners organizations mentioned in our annual top twelve include McDonough’s Your Independent Grocer, Ottawa 67s, Viral Clean, Government of Canada / National Disability Employment Awareness Month, Canada Revenue Agency, Employment Ontario Ottawa Network, and United Way East Ontario!
We are open to a new banking sector sponsor!
