Beach Party Fundraiser For Connaught Public School's Play Structure

  • The HIntonburg Public House 1020 Wellington Street West Ottawa, ON, K1Y 2X9 Canada (map)

Join us for a Beach Themed Party to raise the much needed funds for Connaught Public School's play structure. The Hintonburg Public House will be donating 15% of all food sales PLUS $2 from our beach themed cocktail menu, select wine and beer during the event. Fun starts at 3-5pm. Be sure to bring cash as there will a few fun ways to help raise some funds. (There is a ATM across the street if you forget) Beach attire encouraged!  

Why should you attend? The kindergarten play structure is at the end of its 25-year life span. The school board does not replace play structures (shocking right!), so they need to raise the funds to replace it, or the play structure will be removed — permanently.

Encroaching development projects, adjacent to the grade 1 to 6 yard, will result in the loss of almost 80% of the tree canopy bordering this play area as well. The kids will be left with a yard that is covered in large areas of concrete and dirt, with minimal shade and greenery, surrounded by towering condo buildings.

Clearly the school yard needs some help so please come to the event!

If you are not available that day, MARCH 1-31 we will be accepting donations on behalf of the project at The HPH. Every little bit will help create a suitable space for the children in the area to spend their days.
