Our annual Gala is going to look a little different this year…

Save the expensive tux rental and put that little black dress back in the closet! On Thursday October 29, 2020 you’re invited to join Habitat Greater Ottawa for our 2020 virtual Gala!

What: 2020 Steel Toes & Slippers Gala
Hosted by CBC Ottawa’s Lucy Van Oldenbarneveld!

When: Thursday October 29, 2020 at 7:30pm EST

Where: Wherever you are!

Tickets on sale soon!

That’s right, our 15th annual Gala event is moving online! Now, you can celebrate the importance of home from the comfort of your home. Pour yourself a drink and get comfortable as you bid on our online auction, listen to inspiring speeches and join participants across Ottawa (and maybe around the world!) as we help provide local families with a safe place to call home.

Our Steel Toes & Slippers Gala will feature:

  • Silent and Live online auctions;
  • Remarks by a Habitat family and other special guests;
  • Community Videos;
  • Performances to keep you entertained throughout the evening;
  • Opportunities to support Habitat Greater Ottawa; and more!

Virtual Event, Real-Life Impact

This pandemic has shown us the incredible importance of having a stable home in which to safely shelter in place. When you support the Steel Toes & Slippers Gala, you’ll be helping Habitat Greater Ottawa do what we do best – building safe, secure and affordable homes for local families.

All proceeds from the event will go towards Habitat’s operations including our upcoming affordable housing developments, Titus Landing at Wateridge Village in 2020 and our new 14-unit development in 2021.
