Register Now: EOC Gatsby Holiday Gala!

  • Published on: Oct 02, 2023

Be sure to join the Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario, Eastern Ontario Chapter, along with the Ottawa/Gatineau Design and Construction Community to celebrate the Holiday Season, Gatsby Style! 

Date and Time: Friday, November 10, 2023, 6pm-11pm
Location: Canadian Museum of History, 100 Laurier Street, Gatineau, QC Paid parking available on site.

This joyous event is not only open to our ARIDO EOC members but also open to the entire community, our industry partners, clients and friends. We invite you to put on your best ‘’roaring 20s’’ and ‘’jazz age’’ attire for an evening of pure enjoyment, reliving the prohibition period with a festive twist. 

The Décor, food and cash bar drinks have been carefully curated to tantalize your all of your senses.  We will also have a live four-piece band, including the saxophone to jazz up the evening. If you are feeling energetic, take part in the Live Auction for our select, most exclusive prizes and then dance the night away to top 40 tunes.

Our silent auction proceeds will benefit the ALS Canada Research Program in honour of Randy Watt, a long time member of our close-knit business community, who was diagnosed with ALS in November, 2022. The silent and live auction proceeds will be donated to the ALS Society by ARIDO EOC to foster public awareness, fund research and provide support to ALS patients and their families.
