vicky vacay deal of the dayFor a decade one of Ottawa’s finest hotels has been helping to battle cancer through a fun and delectable fundraising initiative. The Brookstreet Hotel‘s Lumière Fundraising Gala has raised $162,000 for cancer research and $380,000 for other charities in the Capital Region since it began 10 years ago.

This year’s fundraiser takes place on Wednesday, September 11, and will feature live jazz, award-winning cuisine teamed with fantastic wines, and a spectacular fireworks show over the property’s Marshes golf course. A golf tournament and Au Naturel spa day are also added to this year’s offerings.

The event presents the chance to support a worthwhile cause while socializing with notables in the Ottawa business community — including the gala’s host, Sir Terry Matthews, the first billionaire from Wales and the head of Wesley Clover.

Tickets to the fundraising gala start at $150. Shows Why Brookstreet Scores

With the NHL season fast approaching, hockey fans are planning road trips to see their favourite teams in action. Those headed to Ottawa for a Senators game will want to do what Managing Editor Adrian Brijbassi did and reserve their rooms at the Brookstreet.

Brijbassi writes: “When making your decision on where to stay for the game, your first option should be the Brookstreet Hotel. Besides being extremely comfortable, the Brookstreet is the place where visiting NHL teams choose when they’re in town for a game. The players aren’t off-limits either. I found myself in an elevator with the Rangers’ Rick Nash and dining alongside some of his teammates at Perspectives restaurant. … The rooms are spacious and modern, with outlets for all your gadgets, HDTV, and room-darkening curtains.”
