MALABAR TUTU DAY
International Dance Day Charity Event
On April 29, 2013, Malabar Ottawa will be hosting its first annual Tutu Day to raise money for Roger’s House. Schools and dance studios across the city will be raising funds and participating in a celebrity auction in support of the children’s palliative care facility.
Each year, through dance-supply memberships and donation boxes, Malabar Ottawa raises between $10 000.00 and $15 000.00 for Roger’s House, located on the grounds of CHEO. This year, in celebration of International Dance Day, Malabar has offered to host this fundraising event in order to increase funds and awareness for the facility.
Malabar will be donating tutus to participating schools and dance studios, while local celebrities will be taking pictures in their tutus around the city. The photos of the celebrities, along with their tutus, will be put up for auction on NHL.com, where interested donors can bid to win these celebrity kits and other prizes. All funds raised will be going to Roger’s House.
