In 2020, St. Patrick’s Home of Ottawa Foundation made the decision to try something different. After hosting six galas, we determined that a new format was needed to set ourselves apart; to keep our current supporters engaged, to encourage old friends to join us again, and to bring new people into our circle.

So, with the history and spirit of St. Pat’s in mind, we decided to throw a Ceili with the JUNO award-winning band, Coig. Our goal: to create a casual, social, good-for-the-heart-and-soul kind of experience that raises essential funds for St. Patrick’s Home.

Our tagline was: FANTASTIC food and company, AMAZING live music, and loads of FUN!

Well, on Thursday, February 6, thanks to YOU, our loyal sponsors and other guests, we accomplished just that when we gathered at The Horticulture Building and raised $55,000 (so far). Donations are still being received on a daily basis!

We are so grateful to The Winter Warm-Up sponsors, Ceili Hosts, silent auction donors and every guest that shared this special evening with us, and gave so generously to support priority resident care programs and enhance daily life at St. Pat’s.

We can’t wait to doing it all again in 2021!
