After a few weeks of great publicity for the Ottawa Food Bank, the “Why I love Ottawa/Gatineau” media/celebrity and public photo contest finally came to a close last night. Ottawa Studio Works hosted a day long silent auction of photos taken by Ottawa celebrities including, Ian Black, Sandy Sharky, Jim Watson, Alan Neal and Peter Simpson (among many others). Two great Ottawa Bloggers, Andrea Tompkins and Danielle Donders, also participated in the event and together, more than $1,200 was raised for the Ottawa Food Bank. Not bad, if I say so myself.
As the winner of the public photo contest, I am happy to say that my photo was up on the wall and thankfully, it was able to pull in a couple of bids too! At the end of the day, for those that made it down, it was a great event for a great cause. Harry Nowell also deserves a huge shout out and thank you for putting this amazing fundraising event together.
