This was the third event I have performed at for CREA, the Canadian Real Estate Association. The annual “President’s Dinner” brings the current and former presidents of the organization to Ottawa from all across Canada. This year there were even a few guests in from the United States as well. The event took place at Westin Ottawa’s new rooftop ballroom, Twenty Two (https://venueontwentytwo.com/)
Aptly named for being twenty-two floors up, this beautiful venue has one of the best views of downtown Ottawa overlooking Sussex & Wellington/Rideau. I enjoyed taking in the views of Chateau Laurier and Parliament while I set up for the event.
I performed during the cocktail hour while guests arrived, mingled and enjoyed drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
After speeches, I performed for a few hours through dinner as well.
Before leaving I couldn’t resist capturing a nighttime image of that amazing view from Twenty Two. It has to be one of the best views in town. Isn’t this absolutely stunning?!
