MAYOR WATSON INVITATION TO OTTAWA4FORTMAC



          #Ottawa4FortMac FUNDRAISER JUNE 8th 
          6:30 pm to 10 pm at Aberdeen Pavilion in 
                               Lansdowne Park

As you may know; in a city-wide evacuation, wildfires have displaced tens of thousands of residents of Fort McMurray, Alberta, including nearby communities.

With damage being assessed at historic levels, the impact on those affected is unprecedented.

I am writing today to ask you to consider supporting #Ottawa4FortMac.

#Ottawa4FortMac is a fundraiser hosted by Ottawa Senators player Chris Phillips and myself. It will take place from 6:30PM to 10:00PM on Wednesday June 8, ‎Aberdeen Pavilion, at Lansdowne Park.

This “western roundup” themed event will feature live music by Ottawa-born Country sensation Kira Isabella, Ottawa Country group River Town Saints and Country brother duo The Abrams, as well as entertainment, refreshments from Ottawa’s craft breweries and offerings from Ottawa’s pizzerias.

Tickets for the Fort McMurray fundraising event are now on sale, at a cost of $ 80 each. 

Tickets are in limited quantities and are available for purchase online here, or by cash payment at Big Rig Brewery locations and at my office at City Hall. Donations made by May 31 will be matched by the Government of Canada. 

This natural disaster may become the costliest in Canadian history, but I know you will agree that the impact on the lives of our fellow Canadians in Fort McMurray is much greater. 

It is crucial that residents of Ottawa unite to assist those who have been affected by this tragedy.  

I encourage you to join us in our commitment to helping support the Canadian Red Cross’s emergency appeal and the United Way’s relief efforts directed towards helping the residents of Fort McMurray rebuild their lives and their community, by attending #Ottawa4FortMac and purchasing your tickets.

Sincerely,
