The 2023 Elmwood Gala was a wonderful celebration of Elmwood School, its students and community. The extraordinary support of our Table Hosts, Sponsors, guests, together with other members of the Elmwood community, helped raise an outstanding $300,000 for our Playground Renewal Project that will see the reimagining of the Kinder play yard, and installation of a brand new play structure envisioned by our Junior and Middle School students.
Our sincere gratitude to Gala Patron Jamilah Taib Murray '82, Diamond Table Hosts Ye Chen & Tingting Liu, and all our generous Sapphire and Ruby Table Hosts. Thank you to our Sponsors Marilyn Wilson Dream Properties, Dentons Canada LLP, Jacobsons Fine Food, Rogers Communications, and Otto's BMW & Otto's Subaru. Please view our full list of Table Hosts here.
The Gala received excellent coverage in Ottawa's social networks, including two articles: One by Caroline Phillips in the Ottawa Business Journal, and another by Ashley Fraser in the Ottawa Citizen. You can read these articles by clicking on the links down below!
The evening would not have been possible without the leadership and vision of Clara Francis-Nehme, our Gala Committee Chair. Thank you to Clara and each Committee member: Antonia Betts, Denise Carruthers, Minerva Hernandez, Simran Kochar, Pragash Krishnamoorthy, Shella Mithani, Nina Nicolini, Nimroz Thawer, Nooren Thawer and Jennifer Whiten.
