CoSA Ottawa’s 2018 Fundraising Initiatives!

This year, for the Scotiabank Charity Challenge, our small but mighty team raised $3770! A big thank you and congratulations to our runners/walkers (check out the photo album on our Facebook!) and to all those who sponsored them!

We’d also like to thank Scotiabank and the organizers, in particular Al McCartney, for putting on such a great event and being so supportive of local charities.

We’re looking forward to participating again next year! Hope you’ll join us then.

The Team

L-R: Patrick Love-Vani, Dominique Smith, Jennifer Messer, Susan Love, Kerry Lamming.

Missing: Rick Goodwin and Noella Kuhnle


Thank you to all those who came out to our 3rd fundraising Gala – it was a huge success! We could not have done it without our volunteers, supporters, and friends. A special thank you to Wilma Derksen (keynote speaker), Steve Sullivan (emcee), Pierre Allard (Grace), and Dru Allen (auctioneer). Thank you to all those who donated items to our Live Auction and Mystery Gifts, without you we would not have been able to reach our fundraising goal! To view the pictures, click here. If you would like a photo removed, please contact us and we will do so immediately.

We’d love to hear any feedback the evening’s attendees, let us know what went well, what could be improved upon and any changes we can consider for the next Gala in 2020! Feel free to contact us at
