Spark Soirée

Unfortunately, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel this year’s Spark Soirée event on May 7, 2022. The safety of our guests is a priority, and we recognize there is growing discomfort surrounding in-person events amid the current rise in COVID cases. We’ve respectfully decided to defer the event to next year, May 6, 2023.

Breakfast for dinner never tasted so good – or did so much good, right here in your own community!  

ONFE’s Spark Soirée is a fun-filled night in support of ONFE’s School Breakfast Program. Featuring a breakfast inspired cocktail reception, gourmet breakfast-for-dinner seated three-course meal, and late-night entertainment with one of Montreal’s hottest cover bands, The Ultimate Showband, it’s a night you do not want to miss!

About ONFE’s School Breakfast Program

1 in 5 children in Ottawa live in poverty. This means that thousands of children, through no fault of their own, arrive at school hungry. That’s a serious problem, because hungry kids can’t learn. 

As food costs and food insecurity rates soar, demand for the breakfast program also grows. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on our community, we anticipate that program needs will continue to grow this year.
