Ottawa Model Train Show with Charity in Mind.

Ladies & Gentlemen,

On May 5 & 6, 2012 OTTAWA TRAIN EXPO, the largest Model Railroad Show in eastern Canada, comes to Carleton University Fieldhouse. The 48,000+ sq. ft. hall has been reserved to welcome people from all walks of life into the world of model trains, from “Thomas the Tank Engine” to “Craftsman Structure” builders, OTTAWA TRAIN EXPO will cater to not only the seasoned hobbyist with a passion for modeling and trains, but also to the young family with children enjoying toy trains. Our mission with this event is to promote the hobby and leisure activities with the railroad as the common thread to people of all ages.

Would you consider making a donation to our “Draw Table”?  In return for a gift your name will be prominently displayed on our website with a link to your site. The table will have all the gifts on display, and the attendees choose which item they wish to purchase tickets for. The proceeds from the “Draw Table” will be donated to Roger’s House the Sens Foundations’ charity of choice as our recipient charity.
Roger’s House is an eight bed paediatric residential hospice that welcomes children / youth and their families who are living with a life limiting illness.  The House provides both respite, particularly important for families with children that require 24/7 medical care, or end-of life support. Located in Ottawa on the grounds of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Roger’s House provides a home-like environment allowing children, family and friends to focus on quality time together.  

Items for donation to the Draw Table may be sent to: Ottawa Train Expo, 1447 Launay Ave., Orleans, ON K4A 3R9
