AFP Ottawa Phils Pre Party
“This feels like family, doesn’t it?” asked Jacqueline Belsito, co-chair of the upcoming Ottawa Philanthropy Awards.
Belsito welcomed nearly 100 people at a Rockcliffe residence last Thursday to kick off the giving season, which will culminate in the 28th Annual AFP Ottawa Philanthropy Awards on November 10.
Affectionately known as The Phils, the event will be once again held at the National Arts Centre. After a fully virtual event in 2020, and a more limited group in 2021, more than 300 attendees are now expected. The Phils will also be live streamed on afpottawa.ca and once again hosted by Sam Laprade, host of CityNews’ hit show, “Hour to Give”.
We have missed the last two years being together, but in some ways we never skipped a beat,” said Peter Nicholson, president and founder of Foundation WCPD, who has served as title sponsor of the Phils for the last eight consecutive years. “This is like the Academy Awards for giving, I really do believe that. We are here to acknowledge our finest and our best.”
