2nd Annual SafePet Gin & Jazz Ball

Our Inaugural Masquerade Ball last year was such a MASSIVE success, that we had to do it again — BIGGER and BETTER!! Introducing the SafePet Ottawa Gin & Jazz Ball: A roaring 1920’s / Gatsby-era themed banquet with a twist of darkness befitting the Hallowe’en season.

Our beautiful venue and catering menu is provided by Sala San Marco Banquet Hall on Preston Street in Little Italy. The art nouveau inspired decor will bring you back to a time when going out was a risk — and an adventure — promising a night never short of excitement! Just say thesecret password to enter our speakeasy lounge — but don’t let the “bulls” catch you 😉

Kick up your Mary Janes and tip your top hats, because this is going to be the wildest new-age Jazz party of the decade! True to its name, all bars at our event will be serving two custom-designed gin-based cocktails tailored to our theme: The Fascinator and The Gangster, as well as a flight of 4 specialty gins hand-selected by SafePet supporter and local cocktail enthusiast Paulina Hrebacka, reporter for the Kemptville Advance. $1 from every gin-based beverage will be donated to SafePet Ottawa!

We are honoured and SO excited to have mind-blowing mentalist and event sponsor Jaymes White performing for you all. He has bent minds performing for large charity events and in intimate local settings alike, entertaining and perplexing the masses with his mindreading and hypnotism abilities. To learn more about the nature of Jaymes’ abilities, visit his website:

You will NOT be disappointed by this year’s track list, after all, we’re all about the jazz — but I think you may be surprised when you find you cannot stop moving to the addictive beats of modern day dance-style jazz spun live by the very talented and well-known DJ prowess of our event sponsor, Il Productions (owned by Ilon T). You can find these guys burning-up dance floors in almost every bar in Ottawa on a Saturday night — and we have them at Our Ball on Saturday the 28th.

If you’re afraid you’ll be missing out on Hallowe’en parties, we have a pretty good solution: make the 2nd Annual SafePet Ottawa Gin & Jazz Ball YOUR Hallowe’en weekend party — you WILL NOT be missing out on a thing!!! This is also your opportunity to dress-up and snag some unforgettable photo ops. Get your friends together and share a VIP table; with special group pricing and wicked discount rates for tables of 8 and 10, we have a price point for every budget.

*—— Our Fall-Inspired Menu ——*
Our dinner will be a served, three-course meal with the following dishes:
> Butternut squash soup
> Bruschetta
> Braised short ribs, roasted potatoes, seasonal vegetables
> Boston cream cake
> Coffee & tea selection

**BONUS: Late-night pizza will be served at 10:30 p.m. to keep our party fueled!
