1999 KIWANIS FOR KIDS LOTTERY BACKGROUNDER

A year has passed and it is once again time for the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa’s Annual Kiwanis for Kids Lottery.

Partnering with the Rideau Centre, this year’s Lottery will run for three weeks – October 8, 1999 to October 30, 1999. The main stage and display area will be at Eaton’s Court (2nd level) of the Rideau Centre. CJOH’s Carol Anne Meehan will be launching the lottery at 11:00 a.m. on October 8, 1999 and Max Keeping will once again preside over the draw on October 30, 1999 at 3:00 p.m.. Our banner will grace Rideau Street throughout the month of October, and exciting changes have been introduced to both the prizing and the program.

This year’s event has been given a tremendous boost in the form of live entertainment. Carnival of Cultures has come on board and will be staging lively dance and musical shows throughout the lottery period. As well, school choirs and several well-loved local entertainers will be performing during ticket selling periods. With the enormous support of our partner, the Rideau Centre, and our corporate sponsors and ticket sellers, we expect to build on the momentum of last year’s success.

All funds raised will support Kiwanis initiatives that assist children and youth in the Ottawa-Carleton region.
