In 1997 we held a luncheon at the Congress Centre with guest speaker Roger Moore, ambassador for the “Kiwanis Worldwide Service Project to Eliminate Iodine Deficiency Disorders” (IDD). The luncheon raised $6,500.
In 1990 we held our final Soup Kitchen Live on Rideau Street. Over the 5-year period of the annual event, with the help of the community, our club raised over $300,000 in cash and food for the Ottawa Food Bank.

This special evening will be showcasing three fashion stores this year presenting both ladies and mens wear along with some wonderful accessories. Outskirts and Mario Uomo are well known in Ottawa for Top quality Ready to Wear.
The setting in the Rotunda of the Museum of Nature will compliment the presentation and provide a nice atmosphere for cocktails and Hor D'ourves.
The evening will include a raffle for a pair of Diamond earrings and thanks to our supporters there will be a wonderful selection of Silent Auction items.
Everyone is invited to come out and support The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa and enjoy the evening with friends and family.
Since the first Kiwanis Charity Golf Tournament in 1998 the tournament has raised nearly $1,150,000. All of the net proceeds will be distributed to the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa’s charitable organization with a focus on youth homelessness in Ottawa, a growing and disturbing trend. The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa has made it a major focus to work with key stakeholders that provide support and housing for Ottawa’s most vulnerable homeless population.
The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa ran its 19th Annual Charity Golf Tournament, with the 2016 theme of “Drive to End Youth Homelessness”. The net proceeds will be distributed to support various deserving Kiwanis service projects which support the Kiwanis theme of “One Can Make a Difference”.
Lots of photos are posted here to give you a flavour of this fun event.
