The inaugural SnowBall — a glittering, sold-out event to raise funds for the Snowsuit Fund — launched February 28, 2020. Then COVID hit, and for two long years SnowBall was mothballed.

Now it’s back, and Ottawa’s 2023 social scene looks brighter than ever.

With Ottawa Canadian Tire dealers as its title sponsor, the reimagined SnowBall, A Cool Winter’s Eve takes place February 23, 2023 at 50 Sussex Drive, home of the Royal Canadian Geographic Society.

More than 400 guests will mingle and party in the Society’s elegant, multi-level space, raising funds that each year help provide over 16,000 new snowsuits to keep marginalized children 15 years and younger warm when Ottawa’s cold winter winds blow.

This season’s SnowBall will be a cocktail party experience to remember, with multiple chef stations, DJs and live music, a silent auction, a beauty bar and more, including valet parking.

“It’s an event like no other,” chime Mark Ford and Lise Clement, SnowBall Co-Chairs. “And this year is going to be a real celebration with great food, wonderful music and some surprises we haven’t told anyone about.”

Like its long-running predecessor, The Snowsuit Fund Gala, which was also sponsored by Canadian Tire, SnowBall is an ideal night out with a loved one, friends or co-workers. Inviting employees to attend is also a memorable way to say, “Thank you!” to them while supporting our less fortunate neighbours.
