Expect a bigger and more exciting evening of fabulous food, thrilling entertainment and mingling with interesting, fun and hip people. It's a wonderful way to kick off the spring social and fundraising calendar for Ottawa' GLBT community.
Those attended last year raved about the event, and we hope to build on the positive buzz this year with you and your friends helping us to "Build Our Bank". All profits from the event go to the Village, the group who is helping to make Bank Street a little more colourful, safe and supportive for our community.
Please join us on Thursday, April 15th from 7-9pm at Café Paradiso (199 Bank Street)... the food was so plentiful and delicious that we simply had to have our event here again this year.
Confirmed entertainment includes:
· Rideau Valley Roller Girls
· The Sexual Overtones
· Fabien Melanson
· DJ Jason Pelletier (Spins and Needles)
· MC Kerry Beckett, who will host our live auction
· With more surprises in the works

Thanks so much and see you in the spring!
When & Where
The Village/Le village is a non-profit organization working towards creating and maintaining a gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans-friendly Village in Ottawa's downtown core, roughly covering a six by two block area surrounding Bank Street, from Nepean to James Streets (north to south) and Kent and O'Connor Streets (west to east).
In 2010, we are now a seven person Committee dedicated to nurturing, supporting and growing the businesses and organizations that offer services to the GLBT community, and to promote and support the history, culture and lives of Ottawa's GLBT community.
