37th Reach Annual Celebrity Auction


Thank you for a great evening!

The Reach Annual Celebrity Auction is a high-profile event featuring a cocktail reception, dinner, music and both a live & silent auction. Local and national businesses, artists, Embassies, High Commissions and others contribute items to be auctioned with proceeds going to support Reach’s effort to support equal access to justice for persons with disabilities and educational programming.

Emcees Lawrence Greenspon & James Foord were joined by guest auctioneers Jock Climie, TSN Analyst and former CFL Player, and Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson. Pianist Marylise Chauvette provided a special performance.

The annual auction is run by a highly dedicated volunteer committee who work year-round to bring the most exciting auction items to the event. The auction relies heavily on in-kind support from a number of generous local businesses not only to contribute the auction items, but also to provide decor, appetizers, wine, flower arrangements, AV and meals for the dedicated volunteers.

Reach is seeking feedback from everyone who attended the event. Click here to let us know what you though!
