A bit about some Kickass Canadians who care

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Ottawa

Amanda Sage (who I previously wrote about here) contacted me recently about a really interesting event she’s organizing and I thought I’d share it here with you. It’s a fundraiser for CARE Canada, and it will be taking place at Petit Bill’s Bistro on Sunday October 2.

It’s a great opportunity to nibble and network with some really cool people. Speakers will include:

  • Amanda Putz, CBC Radio host (MC)
  • Rob Woodbridge, mobile business advisor
  • Richard Weber, Arctic and polar explorer
  • Julie Drury, medical advocate
  • John Zahab, ultrarunner, fitness trainer
  • Kevin Newman, journalist, digital media advisor

Other attending Kickass Canadians attending will include:

  • Al Charron, Canadian rugby icon
  • Andrew King, painter
  • Emily Chen, designer
  • Miles Finlayson, filmmaker
  • Ryan Steeves, lawyer, youth mentor

There’ll be a silent auction with proceeds going to go to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ottawa too.

I’ll be there too!

You can buy tickets and read more about this really neat event at the Kickass Canadians website. Please check it out when you have a moment. Thank you!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (17) and Sarah (15). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.

If you'd like to contact me, please use this form. If you're so inclined, you can read more about me here. Thank you for visiting!
