Breaking Bread Breaking Stigma
October 23 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Hopewell Eating Disorder Support Centre will hold its third annual signature fundraiser in the Horticulture Building at Lansdowne Park on Wednesday, October 23rd. It will bring people together to “break bread” and use this opportunity to further “break stigma” around these deadly mental illnesses.
This is important because while eating disorders are the most fatal mental health diagnosis, they remain grossly misunderstood and heavily stigmatized. Breaking bread together will give our guests a chance to learn more about why Hopewell’s work is so vital in our community.
The concept for the evening is a gourmet sandwich showdown, featuring a roster of Ottawa’s top chefs (TBA), and a panel of celebrity judges to crown the “Sandwich Sovereign of Ottawa!”. We are happy to welcome this year’s esteemed judges, Margaret Dickenson, as well as our Honorary Event Patron, Joe Thottungal.
There will also be a silent auction of exciting prizes available on-site as well as a live auction.
Early Bird Tickets for Hopewell’s Breaking Bread, Breaking Stigma are available now! The first 100 tickets are just $100 each!
