Spark’s Cocktail and Networking event on Tuesday November 15th was a packed house at Play Food & Wine, full of energy celebrating the power of extraordinary women making a difference in Ottawa.
The sold-out event brought out over 100 individuals from different backgrounds in Ottawa, from community developers to business and law professionals to women interested in learning more about spark’s work within the community.
Manjit Basi was honoured with the first-ever spark Ignite Award for her incredible philanthropic and community work in Ottawa. Shirley Westeinde also spoke about her experiences being a trailblazer in the Ottawa construction industry.
By the end of the night, we recruited 6 new spark members and dozens more expressed interest in getting involved. The large turnout and energy in the room demonstrated the power of spark: bringing women together to create positive change in our community.
