Meet The Event Co-Chairs

Topper Event Co Chairs

We are delighted to be bringing back our hugely successful BGCO Gala. In 2019, our inaugural Gala event was a big hit. Everyone loved the relaxed atmosphere, exquisite food and drinks, and fun times on the dance floor. This year, we have even more surprises and delights in store for our friends and guests.

The Gala is a perfect opportunity to support the important work of BGC Ottawa in our community. With your help, thousands of children each year receive free programs and services that set them on a path of success and fulfillment. On behalf of the hard-working committee, we need you to know that although this event is for a critical cause, this is not your typical Gala. Missing from the night; lengthy speeches, rubber chicken, silent auction, and fussy hospitality.

Instead, you will experience a magical night under the stars with all the joys of camping, minus any inconvenience. Throw in an elevated glamourous social atmosphere, delicious dishes from six of Ottawa’s top restaurants, custom cocktails from Riviera’s master Mixologist Stephen Flood, a surprise celebrity guest DJ, and we’ve got the formula for an amazing evening. Our theme is a wink to our sleep-away camp, Camp Smitty, which serves hundreds of kids each year. Please consider buying your ticket, or becoming a sponsor of the BGC Ottawa Glamping Gala. It will be a singular experience you won't forget.
