The feather skirt

To help raise money for a new building, the Ottawa Art Gallery held an elegant fundraiser at the Museum of Civilization. The guest speaker was Daniel Pink, a former chief speechwriter to Al Gore while the now-environmental crusader was vice-president. Pink is seen here with Don Newman’s wife Shannon Day-Newman, who is on the board of the gallery.


The event patron was the Right Honorable Beverley McLachlin, Chief Justice of Canada.


Best outfit award that night goes to this fabulous feather skirt.
