It was a day of music, good cheer and fundraising for the Ottawa Food Bank.
As of 7 p.m. Friday, CBC Ottawa's annual Project Give fundraiser had raised $189,425.70, and people can continue to donate all weekend long.
Last year, the fundraiser brought in more than $130,000.
In addition to collecting donations over the phone and at the National Arts Centre, CBC Ottawa also sold a cookbook featuring recipes from our journalists.
The grand total will be announced Monday on Ottawa Morning.
