Since inception, the Ottawa Wolves have sought out and connected with thousands of people around the National Capital Region, Canada and around the world. We believe it is important for our members to be positive and active forces within our community. Members of our Club have contributed both time and funds to a variety of local groups in our region.
We believe in giving back to our community as their support has allowed us to play the game we love. Over the past three years, the Wolves have raised funds and served as route marshals for the Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life. Since 2012, we've raised over $10,000 for the Walk. We're also proud of our members who volunteer their time for worthwhile community organizations, like the Ten Oaks Project, or actively participate in forums driving awareness and helping to eliminate homophobia in amateur sports.
For the second consecutive year, on May 29, 2014 the Ottawa Wolves participated in Swirl & Twirl. Swirl & Twirl is an evening fundraising event featuring wine, beer and food tastings, entertainment, and a silent auction in support of Ottawa-Gatineau GLBTTQA community not-for-profit organizations.
Swirl & Twirl seeks to raise awareness and funds for a diverse selection of not-for-profit organizations (including registered charities) representing a wide range of needs and interests of the local community. The registered charities that were selected as beneficiaries from 2014’s fundraising event included Bruce House, the Canadian Tribute to Human Rights, Ottawa Pride and Inside Out Ottawa LGBT Film Festival.
Not only did the Ottawa Wolves help us to promote the event, they were key players once again to ensure that the evening went off without a hitch. Special thanks to Chris Fennell, Gregory Gouthier, Daniel Harris, Jason Haug, Audrey Hudson and Carah Hudson who donned their Ottawa Wolves Uniforms and served up hors d'oeuvres and canapes throughout the evening to our more than 350 guests.
It is thanks in great part to partner organizations such as the Ottawa Wolves that Swirl and Twirl has been able to grow in its mandate and provide much needed support to these worthwhile organizations.
Thanks to the Ottawa Wolves once again for a job well done and for your invaluable support!
