|Participating in Ottawa's New Years Eve Charity Ball
On December 31, 2017, 10 members of the Jamaican Ottawa Community Association attended this Charity Ball
as the final Canada 150 event of the year. It was quite different than what we were used to.
We had 8 seniors, 1 middle aged and one teenager in attendance. The night started off with the guest speaker
and a lot of other talking. After this, people were dancing to the quartet that was the entertainment while the food
was being served. We had a four course meal with wine and dessert.
There was a charity casino there where each person received $100 in charity bucks to spend. There was also a
silent auction that went on all evening. They also had a live auction that took place.
It was quite a busy night with lots of things going on. There were over 500 people in attendance.
