day of pink gala ottawa 2018

Please join the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity on Wednesday, April 11th, 2018, to celebrate the Day of Pink Gala in Ottawa.

RSVP: ccgsd-ccdgs.org/pink

Location: Horticulture Building (1525 Princess Patricia Way, Ottawa, ON K1S 5J3)
Time: 5:30-9pm

The Gala is a fabulous event featuring a reception and an award ceremony. At the award ceremony, we will give Awards to leaders from across Canada who have gone above and beyond in the fight against bullying and discrimination.

This year’s event is proud to pay tribute to divers queer & trans folks featuring performances from a special curated group of local artists and performers.

The gala is a FREE EVENT. Our goal with the Gala is not to raise money, but to build community and celebrate the success of CCGSD over the past year. There will be hors d’oeuvres provided free of charge, and beverages will be available through a cash bar. We will also have a raffle and silent auction to help raise funds for the gala. Our VIPink guests will be provided free beverages throughout the night, priority seating during the award ceremony, and will have their name added to the VIPink exclusive raffle.

The CCGSD is always focused on our work in schools. As such, we are proud to announce that this event is a zero-budget event, with any profits made funneled directly into our programming across Canada.

We acknowledge that this event is being held on the traditional territories of the Algonquin peoples.

This event is fully accessible and bilingual.

Recommended dress code: Fabulous pink

Bessie Blue sees spots, but you should see art! My art, in fact. Please come on down to the Shanghai Restaurant on Thursday, March 29 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. to see my animals on parade. I’ll be there, hanging out and eating noodles. Stick around, look at the paintings, chat, maybe have some Chinese food and a drink. Then roll up your sleeves and get ready to dab! From 8:30 p.m. there will be fun, games and glamour when the marvelous China Doll hosts an evening of bingo. It doesn’t get any better than this!

I will be donating my proceeds from the sales of the paintings in this show to St. Luke’s Table, a community service that provides meals and support to those in need. St. Luke’s Table is also located in Chinatown.
