Wabano’s Igniting the Spirit Gala has become one of Ottawa’s most significant and sought-after social events of the year, bringing people together to celebrate National Indigenous People’s Day as we raise funds for Wabano’s essential services.

This high-profile event attracts over 600 corporate and community leaders who are committed to reconciliation with Indigenous people. Wabano’s last gala featured more than 200 silent auction items and raised $200,000!

This year’s gala theme is the Drum: the heartbeat of Mother Earth. Her rhythm speaks to all people equally and peacefully helping us heal and live in balance: mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically.

Join us as we explore and celebrate how music, and specifically the drum, improves the health of people, communities and the land. Honour your unique rhythm in support of this important Indigenous charity.
