A Different Stage of Mind in support of the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health

Several local capital business leaders and philanthropists came together last night with a vision of charitable giving and community development, hosted by the Lift Foundation.  Their chosen charity was The Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health.  Their chosen format, a comedy / variety show including local "celebrities" such as Aik Alifers, Barbara Crook, Paul Hindo, and Jim Orbain.  They portrayed the characters of Billy Joel, Julie Andrews, Jordan Heavyfoot (Gordon Lightfoot), Frank Sinatra, Patsy Cline, Ritchie Valens, and more.  Special appearances were made by "Johnny Carson and his sidekick", and by the all female comedey group, She Said What.  This event took place at the beautiful Shenkman Centre.  Donations can be made at the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health.  The show was produced by Zed Events and photographed by yours truly.
