Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa glamping gala raises over $450K

The money raised will go through the club to Camp Smitty and other programs.

Youth and children across Ottawa can continue to enjoy free programs offered by the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa (BGC), thanks to the funds raised through the annual glamping gala.

This year’s gala, a cocktail-style stand-up event, took place on Friday, June 10 under the stars on BGC Ottawa’s Greta Lawn, adjacent to the Rideau Canoe Club.

This year the event raised money for Camp Smitty.

“Everyone is welcome,” said Sanra Plagakis of KISS 105.3. “Young people can go regardless of their financial situation. We help hundreds of children and youth through this camp each summer, and thousands more at our day camps in Ottawa.”

Organizers say the gala will return in 2023.
