20th Annual For the Kids Charitable Auction - April 20th, 2017

The “For the Kids” Charitable Auction is celebrating its milestone 20th Anniversary and we would like you to be part of the event!  This iconic evening is dedicated to raising awareness and funds for children and youth with multiple physical and developmental disabilities and associated behavioural needs.  Funds raised will be allocated to the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre (OCTC) programs and services, for example, to:

  • Help children and youth with disabilities to access technology to assist in their communication, writing, educational and seating or mobility needs
  • Provide out-of-home respite options for families with children who are medically fragile and/or technologically dependent
  • Support families so their young children and teens can become more independent, develop their potential, and participate actively in daily life
  • Collaborate with community partners to provide recreation therapy programs for children and youth with special needs


This pre-eminent event takes place on Thursday, April 20, 2017, from 5:30-8:30 pm at the iconic Shaw Centre in downtown Ottawa.
