Joyraiser for Julian

Tuesday, September 17, 2019 | 8:00pm

Joyraiser for Julian
$50.00 – $100.00 *

Who has two thumbs (and cancer) and loves to laugh?
Diagnosed in January of 2018, Julian Warrick is fighting stage 4 colon cancer with all his heart. Doing everything he can to battle the disease, but incurring the steep costs of travel and treatment, Julian enlisted in drug trials in Nashville in the hopes of finding an effective treatment. The fight continues but time is precious.

Join us as we throw him an epic ‘joyraiser’ to lift his spirits and fundraise money for his wife, Alex and 4 year old daughter, Audrey.

Julian is a huge fan of comedy and has hand-picked some of Canada’s top comedians to entertain you and give us and Julian a night of laughter to remember. Let’s join together as an army of joy-raisers to show the Warricks our support.


K. Trevor Wilson (Letterkenny)
Arthur Simeon (Laugh Out Loud, The Debaters)
(Host) Leonard Chan (Just for Laughs)
Courtney Gilmour

If we are lucky, Julian might even try his hand at stand up.

Tickets range from $50 to $100.

All proceeds benefit Julian’s treatment and help his family.

Sept. 17th – Doors at 7pm. Show Starts at 8pm.

If you are unable to attend but would still like to give – you can make a donation via Eventbrite or by visiting Julian’s Go Fund Me page.

She’s Listening for Ovarian Cancer Research

This will prove to be an amazing evening of music in support of Ovarian Cancer Canada on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 right here at Hugh’s Room Live. There will be a beautiful cast of vocalists and musicians including Saffron A, Sarah Siddiqui, Mikalyn Hay, Brooklyn Doran, Hadley McCall Thackston and Madison Galloway as well as a few more TBA. For great music toward a great cause, join us at Hugh’s Room Live.

She’s Listening

She’s Listening began as a fundraising concert December 7, 2012 at Bassline Station in Ottawa with the Four Winds and Kelly Sloan. The Winds and Kelly took up the cause, and the Winds became a driving force behind keeping the momentum going and turning a single benefit into an ongoing series of concerts and CD.  A second concert took place April 21 at Luneta Bistro with Angie and Louise Arsenault, Kristine St-Pierre, Sophia Radisch and Meg La Grand. It was here that the CD project was born and the first CD produced with tracks from Andrea Ramolo, Angela Saini, Angie Arsenault, Jenny MacDonald, and mofre.

She’s Listening will become a crucial weapon in the arsenal of the battle against ovarian cancer. Funds raised will go to Ovarian Cancer Canada.

An Evening for Jack with Paul Reddick

Thursday, March 21, 2019 | 8:30pm

An Evening for Jack with Paul Reddick
Advance $25.00 / Door $30.00 *

On November 19, 2018, my husband, Jack, died of cancer. He has been most of my life for the past nine years and during the last fourth months of his battle, he was my entire life.

I want part of my recovery to involve real action. Part of that action will come through awareness campaigns to draw attention to legislative failures on the topic of medically-assisted suicide, and another will be through fundraising for cancer. It is on this second actionable course that I am presenting a performance by Canadian blues legend, Paul Reddick.

I have already raised nearly $7000 towards the Rexall OneWalk to Conquer Cancer, well on my way to the $10,000 target I set for myself. If you’ve contributed, thank you. If you’d like to contribute or join the team, please join us at Hugh’s Room Live for a night to remember.

Jack would have been absolutely thrilled. He was a huge fan of Paul’s and indeed it was Paul’s album, Ride the One, that we played as Jack died.

For this charitable performance, I invite everyone to spend an evening with me to honour Jack’s memory and contribute to a good cause. The evening will include both a performance Paul Reddick and a wonderful Silent Auction with items Miraj Hammam Spa at the Shangri La Hotel, from One Restaurant at the Hazelton Hotel, a bouquet from Petite Studio, a portrait shoot from Sweetheart Empire, our wedding photographer, a wine kit from Main West U Brew
