Monthly Update – November 2019
November 2019 was another fantastic month at Kids Up Front. We were able to provide tons of exciting opportunities for our partners and expand to connect with new agencies. We now partner with 107 child-serving agencies in Ottawa. We’re thrilled to offer them access to the diverse opportunities that make Ottawa such a vibrant city.
By the Numbers
In October we were able to distribute a total of 826 tickets to deserving children, youth and their families. The experiences we provided for our partner agencies equal a cash value of $24,886. Tickets were distributed to 49 individual Partner Agencies.
Matilda the Musical: We were thrilled to partner with Orpheus Musical Theatre, who provided tickets to three performances of Matilda the Musical. This charming and enchanting show captured our recipients’ interest and received rave reviews! A big thank you to Orpheus for their support.
NAC Performances: In November, we continued to receive incredible support from our new partners at the National Arts Centre. Our recipients were delighted to attend Boston Ballet, Bangarra Dance Theatre and Une lune entre deux maisons.
Harry’s Musical World: A spellbinding performance by our friends the Ottawa Pops Orchestra. Audience members heard the iconic Harry Potter soundtrack brought to life in a magical show.
Paw Patrol Live!: Thanks to a generous donation from VStar Entertainment Group, some of our youngest participants were able to see these heroes up close. Paw Patrol Live! Race to the Rescue saw their favourite pups visit Ottawa in larger-than-life form.
These opportunities are but a small selection of our programming this month. We also provided tickets to the symphony, hockey games, football games, museums and much more. We believe it is crucial that our programming matches the diversity of the children and youth in Ottawa, and their interests.
