Description

Interested in learning more about youths' experiences in the Canadian child welfare system and what the term "in care" means? Want to find out more about what Youth In Care Canada is doing to help voice the opinions and concerns of youth in and from care?

We’re hosting Fostering Change: A Night in Support of Youth In Care on Sunday, August 20th at the Rideau Carleton Raceway to help increase awareness about issues affecting youth in care and highlight the importance of continuing efforts to further national youth in care networks across Canada. Our goal is to raise $5,000 so that our organization can continue to provide support for youth in and from care via research, policy development, training of professionals, and continued development of community-level and provincial-level Canadian youth in care networks.

Your ticket includes:

  • live harness horse racing
  • a buffet dinner
  • free valet parking
  • $5 play voucher at OLG slots
  • reserved seating
  • and a complementary race program with additional information about our oganization and stories from youths in and from care

There will also be in-house fundraising throughout the evening, including a silent auction with signed Ottawa Senators merchandise, Ottawa Fury tickets, and much more! Be sure to stop by and support our continued efforts to further the national and international youth in care networking movement in Canada!

Ticket sales end on August 18th. Be sure to get yours soon!




FAQs

How does the reserved seating work?

Table reservations can be made up to 6 people. If you're looking to sit with people you know, please buy your tickets together so we can put the reservation under one person's name and keep track of how many tables are available!

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Nope! There is a family-friendly entrance for children and families who wish to avoid entering the event through OLG Slots. ID is required if you'd like to play the OLG Slots on the Rideau Raceway property.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

You get free valet parking with the purchase of every ticket! Whether you provide a tip is up to you. The Rideau Carleton Raceway is also accessible via OC Transpo.

I have a food allergy. Am I still able to eat at the buffet during this event?

If you have a food allergy, the Rideau Carleton Raceway's dining hall has a fully-functioning kitchen that can cook meals for you and ensure no cross-contamination occurs with potential allergens!

What's the refund policy?

Refunds are typically not allowed, but we can make exceptions for extenuating circumstances!

Who do I contact if I have questions, comments, or concerns?

Please contact Allysa Czerwinsky at allysa@youthincare.ca. She'd be happy to help!
