The EBMT Gala Dinner is traditionally our biggest fundraiser, and is always extremely well-received by our Canadian and Caribbean patrons.

The first Gala in 2013 provided guests with an evening of sophistication and enjoyment at Ottawa’s City Hall. 

2017 EBMT Gala (click to browse memories)
The 2017 EBMT Gala was held at the EY Centre, Ottawa. This spectacular event raised the bar on the 2013 EBMT Gala in every way, reaching an unforgettable climax with the “private” concert appearance of renowned jazz musician Oliver Jones, who is one of Canada’s most beloved and celebrated pianists.

2019 EBMT Gala Dinner
September 21
EY Centre (4899 Uplands Drive)

The 2019 Gala will uphold the tradition of high class entertainment and dining, with sumptuous Caribbean and Canadian cuisine, a silent auction and a feature performance by internationally acclaimed Canadian jazz vocalist and actress, Ms. Ranee Lee of Montreal (Ranee Lee bio) – who has performed many times with Oliver Jones.  A lucky guest will win a trip to Barbados.

The event starts at 6:00 p.m. with canapes, cocktails and cash bar, followed by dinner and the much-anticipated after-dinner performance. 


Here is a YouTube preview of Ranee Lee in Dark Divas, (from her album of the same name) where Ranee wrote and performs in a musical about the lives of some of the most compelling women singers of the century.
