On Wednesday, February 28, SnowBall: A Cool Winter’s Eve returns, and 400+ guests will gather for an all-inclusive and luxurious cocktail party at the Ottawa Art Gallery and Arts Court to battle the winter blahs. This is a chance to get all dressed up and enjoy an evening out on the town for a good cause. Early-bird ticket prices end on Monday, January 28, so this weekend is your chance to get in before the deadline.

The SnowBall is put on annually by the Snowsuit Fund, a local charity distributing snowsuits to disadvantaged local children for 42 years. Over 16,000 snowsuits are gifted annually, and the SnowBall is essential for the Fund’s annual fundraising. Funds raised from SnowBall directly support the purchase, warehousing and distribution of snowsuits.
