ABOUT THE EVENT!

OnlyTakesOne is a not for profit movement founded in 2020 by 13 year old Ava James-Sidoli, with a goal and vision to fundraise for the most needed charities in our community.

Ava is asking for the communities’ help. For her 14th birthday, Ava has teamed up with Koda Entertainment, Bobby B. Productions, The Urban Centre and Collabspace for a Dance Fundraiser, with all proceeds going to the Canadian Cancer Society in name of Stu Schwartz. We are in need of a sponsor(s) that will participate in this venture with us and help spreading the word.

very special place in her family’s heart. She started her mission by going door-to-door, to collect food and raise monitory donations. Her goals may have been small back then, but her dreams were big! She would soon discover the fire that burned so brightly for those in need, was about to take flight in ways she never thought possible.

In November 2019 Ava had an idea to take on social media, in an effort to beat her previous years of fundraising. Her family started a Facebook page for her, with a goal of $200 and 20 boxes of perishable food items. With the help from family, friends, The Ottawa Red Blacks, the Ottawa 67s, local radio stations (Magic 100 and Boom 99.7), CTV News, the Kanata Newspaper and Magazine and the Petawawa Military, her efforts raised a total of $5000.00 and 1873lbs of food - which were donated to the Ottawa Foodbank and The Kanata Food Cupboard.

During Ava's Food Bank campaign, she had the pleasure of meeting Stu Schwartz; an amazing, supportive, kind, caring and uplifting man. He took a special piece of Ava's heart during that campaign, what better way than to kick off the launch of OnlyTakesOne & raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society/Leukaemia Research.
