    MPI Charity Auction and Dinner

    One of the most anticipated nights of the year for networking, socializing and fundraising is coming up on February 1, 2018. It’s the Annual MPI Ottawa Charity Auction and Dinner. If you attended the event last year, you will remember how incredible it was. We raised a lot of money for our two charities, we had some fantastic presentations and we heard some amazing stories about the people we support in our community. It was a unique evening you don’t want to miss.
