HOPE VOLLEYBALL SUMMERFEST
July 14 hopehelps.com One of summer’s best parties and fundraising events takes over Mooney’s Bay Beach for another fun Saturday in the sand. Thousands of volleyball players and spectators will descend on the dunes to bump, smash, and dig their way to glory, all while accumulating donations for charities like the Ottawa Mission, Special Olympics Ontario, and the Children’s Aid Foundation of Ottawa. HOPE is, after all, an acronym for “helping other people everywhere.” There’s plenty of great BBQ offerings to keep everyone fuelled up and a main stage with free entertainment from the Long Beach, California indie blues rock band Cold War Kids,
Kelowna’s indie rock outfit
yukon Blonde, and power pop Toronto boys Sam Coffey & the Iron lungs. Can you dig it?
