Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization added an event.

This is a fundraising dinner for the Marion Dewar Scholarship Fund (MDSF) which provides an annual post-secondary scholarship to two eligible immigrant students studying in Ottawa.

Join us for a memorable night of food, wine and culture. The dinner will be planned by Marion’s daughter, Cathy Dewar, the Manager of Restaurant International at Algonquin College, who for 24 years owned the popular Savana Cafe.

Cathy is excited to be able to honour her mom in this way: “I have always had a passion for working with young people and have worked a lot with new Canadians.”

The food will be created by Chef Dan Halden along with Pastry Chef Catherine Beddall and their Algonquin Culinary students. Molecular cocktails and canapés to start followed by a 3 course food and wine pairing dinner.

Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization added an event.

The screening is being re-scheduled because of a risk of a thunderstorm. Join us Saturday, August 27th for a screening of Brooklyn, presented by the Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization (OCISO). Brooklyn is a Irish-British-Canadian romantic drama based on Colm Tóibín's of the same name. The film was nominated for 3 Oscars in 2015 (including Best Picture) and garnered 30 wins and 141 nominations from other film awards in 2015/16.

Admission is by donation and all funds raised will support OCISO's work supporting the settlement needs of newcomers in Ottawa!

TRAILER: www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ekxPFTZm1Y

ABOUT THE MOVIE: Brooklyn tells the profoundly moving story of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs Ireland and the comfort of her mother’s home for the shores of New York City. The initial shackles of homesickness quickly diminish as a fresh romance sweeps Eilis into the intoxicating charm of love. But soon, her new vivacity is disrupted by her past, and she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.
