The Ottawa Riverkeeper Gala
With COVID-19 numbers on the rise and many restrictions for events still in place, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Riverkeeper Gala planned for this Fall.
We will miss bringing people back together in person by the beautiful Ottawa River. However, there are so many limitations and unknowns at play that planning is extremely challenging and the health and safety of our guests and staff is a top priority.
We may be unable to host an in-person Gala this year, but don’t worry, we are including some of your favourite Gala traditions as part of this year’s Annual Public Meeting! You can look forward to our famous online auction, which will end the night of the Annual Public Meeting on December 7th. We will celebrate the recipients of our Honorary Riverkeeper and Water Leader awards as part of the virtual event as well.
2021 Auction Launching Soon!
Our wildly popular Riverkeeper Gala Auction always features unique and exclusive items. Last year we introduced mobile bidding, with an impressive array of high end items from experience packages, to gorgeous artwork, and one-of-a-kind items.
This year we are continuing this tradition, with our online auction launching in November, and ending the day of our Annual Public Meeting on December 7th.
All proceeds from our auction go towards keeping our river swimmable, drinkable, and fishable for everyone. If you are interested in donating items to the auction, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
