The year 2017 will be long be remembered in Ottawa for its sesquicentennial celebrations, chock full of memorable events.

Caroline Phillips is a columnist for OBJ.

To help readers stay on top of these and other high-profile happenings, OBJ is launching multimedia coverage of the social scene with a veteran columnist.

Dedicated sections in the OBJ newspaper and website features coverage of the galas, fundraisers, soirees and other social events taking place around the city.

That coverage – which already includes photo slideshows, short videos and articles – will be further expanded next month when a new web destination, OBJ.social, debuts on April 3. An e-mail newsletter will begin on April 17.

The coverage will be spearheaded by longtime social columnist Caroline Phillips, who worked at the Ottawa Citizen for more than a decade.

“I am so grateful to have a job where I get to share with the broader community some of the truly great things happening in Ottawa,” she says. “Joining a locally based publication like OBJ struck me as a seamless move.”

“It’s an absolute thrill for OBJ to launch this type of social scene coverage,” says publisher Michael Curran. “This is going to be a fantastic addition to our editorial offering.”

Coverage is made possible thanks to a group of patrons assembled to finance the project, including EYAndaz Ottawa ByWard Market, Mark Motors of Ottawa, the National Arts CentreIPC-OPES Wealth Management and Soloway Wright LLP.
