MPI Ottawa‘s 2014 Annual Charity Auction and Dinner raised $25,715 for the Ottawa Network for Education’s School Breakfast Program.
The event took place on February 6th at the Ottawa Convention Centre, following the CSAE Tête-à-Tête Tradeshow. It was attended by more than 700 meeting, tourism and event professionals, who enjoyed a great dinner, silent auction, live auction and ticket raffle.
The Ottawa Network for Education’s School Breakfast Program, which is the Ottawa chapter’s principal recipient charity, provides a nutritious breakfast for 11,300 children and youth in 148 schools across the city. In addition to making a financial contribution, MPI Ottawa members also assist the program by serving breakfasts at schools across the city over the course of the year.
The Charity Auction and Dinner has consistently raised more than $25,000 a year in support of the program.
