More about The 2nd Annual Casino Royale (from their website):
The 2nd Annual Casino Royale is an upscale and exciting event that will once again leave the City of Ottawa both shaken… and stirred. This unique event will be returning to the 5-star luxury hotel, Brookstreet in Kanata, and is in support of the Candlelighters, Ottawa Humane Society and the Julianne Courneya Trust Fund. The 2nd Annual Casino Royale provides an experience unlike any other in the city.
This event blends the thrills and excitement of the Las Vegas strip, with the suave elegance made famous in the James Bond films. Guests will have the opportunity to play their favorite casino games like Roulette, Poker, Blackjack, Crown and Anchor and many more. Guests will be given “casino money” with their ticket on arrival, which can be used at the live auction to win exciting prizes like flat screen tv’s, home theatres, spa packages, sports vacations, luxury items, iPads, iPhones and so much more!
This year’s event will features two grand prizes: a trip for 2 to the United Kingdom to stay at a luxurious resort on a famous golf course where the Ryder Cup was held, and a trip for 2 to the 2014 Grammy Awards in Hollywood, California!

JULIANNE COURNEYA TRUST FUND
On July 11, 2005, Julianne Courneya of Kanata was brutally attacked while working in Banff. The attack resulted in severe brain injuries. Julianne is now cared for at home and her recovery is dependent upon specialized therapies. Funding from third parties is very limited. The Courneya family has created a trust fund in order to pay for the specialized treatment Julianne received in the United States, and continues to receive in Canada.
