Ottawa Mission’s Blue Door at your Door

The Blue Door Gala, named after the blue front door that opens into the Mission’s 35 Waller St. building, attracted 570 guests in 2019 and grossed $238,000. Then the COVID-19 pandemic came along and put a kibosh on large gatherings, causing organizers to rejig their format to a virtual one. Organizers hope to raise $300K to help hungry and homeless as event sponsors match up to $95K in donations

Caivan is proud to be the presenting sponsor, supporting Blue Door since the beginning, which was represented at the launch by Senior Vice-President Jonathan Wiseman.

The doors of opportunity will be opening Nov. 6 for more than a dozen men and women graduating from The Ottawa Mission’s Food Services and Training Program with the skills they need to work in a commercial kitchen.
