It’s Tuesday, September 20, 2022 and now that Atlético Ottawa is number one, it's time to commence the bandwagon jumping. Check out this goal from Sunday.
Get ready: we're opening nominations for our 3rd Annual Best of Ottawa awards tomorrow. We're looking for the best in Ottawa's food, cultural, and public service scenes – and we need you to make our nominations all encompassing.
Let us remind your of our rules: it's called the Best Of Ottawa, but your nominations can be from the city of Ottawa, la ville de Gatineau, the Ottawa Valley, or the Outaouais; we only shortlist organizations that are headquartered in this area (for example, you may love Second Cup coffee but as it's headquartered in Montréal it's ineligible for nomination); and the person, place, or thing that you're nominating must be current (don't nominate a gig you attended in 2017).
The link will go up tomorrow. We want you to ruminate overnight.
Cookies and Jazz
▪️The 2022 Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign will be donating $1 from the sale of the seasonal cookies to more than 500 charities across Canada. In Ottawa, $1 from each Smile Cookie sold will be donated to the Snowsuit Fund, which purchases warm snowsuits for kids 15 and younger from low-income families. Last year the Smile Campaign raised more than $207,000, enough to provide snowsuits for 4,100 children. It’s a great cause, and the cookies are yummy. Win-win.
▪️Ottawa Jazz Festival is looking for three arts-passionate volunteers for its Board of Directors.
