Event description

Description

The Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (NPSIA) is excited to invite you to our annual Benefit Soirée! Each year, the Soirée Committee organizes a memorable charity function to raise awareness of key global concerns while creating an opportunity for students and community members to make a difference by supporting charity initiatives.

For the Benefit Soirée of 2018 we are honoured to host Peter Mansbridge as our keynote speaker. Mansbridge’s sterling career at the CBC is without precedent. He served as the chief correspondent of CBC News, helmed its flagship show The National, anchored all CBC News specials and hosted the intelligent interview show Mansbridge: One on One. For his work, he has received over a dozen national awards for broadcast excellence—yet for all the accolades, he remains an astoundingly grounded individual, with a
gentle humour and trademark integrity. This year, he will be speaking on 'Sound Reporting in a Disquieted World.'

All proceeds from this year’s Soirée Benefit will go to The Ottawa Food Bank, which distributes 14 tons of food to hungry Ottawa citizens who cannot make ends meet each and every day. The Food Banks aims to supply its patrons with fresh food whenever possible and is a vital service, which many depend on.
