Snowflake Ball, February 14th, 2015 at the Hilton Lac-Leamy

Third Floor York had the pleasure of being asked to photograph this year’s Snowflake Ball on February 14th, 2015 with a “Springtime in Paris” theme. The Snowflake Ball is one of Ottawa’s most glamourous and one of Canada’s most prestigious and breathtakingly beautiful charity balls.

It was an evening of unsurpassed glamour and all the dazzling romance of a Parisian Spring at the extraordinary Valentine’s Day ball held at the Hilton Lac-Leamy in Gatineau, Quebec.

The ball supports awareness and ground-breaking research for pediatric IBD (a group of inflammatory disorders that includes Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) and helps to save lives by promoting early screening for colon cancer. Proceeds benefit the world-class Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Inflammatory Bowel Disease Centre and Screen Colons Canada.
