With the participation of some very well-known speakers such as Dr. Marie-France Marin, Rose-Marie Charest, Alexandre Taillefer, the duo of Caroline and Jeff de Ludique and hosted by none other than Geneviève Gagnon (Cours Toutoune), this free event welcomed more than 250 guests and many corporate partners.  The major corporate partners for the event were Constructions Bâtiments Québec, les Caisses Desjardins de la Rive-Sud de Montréal and Groupe Lalonde Doyon.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to Desjardins Ménard and associates, BCF Avocat d’affaires, Lucienne Lalonde (Royale Lepage), Desjardins Gestion du patrimoine (Anik Armand team), Le groupe Cotran, le Centre Financier aux Entreprises Desjardins, Intact Insurance, BFL Canada, Martin Tremblay, Louis Graton, Catryn Pinard from Nationex, Toitures Couture, Jean Coutu Group and les Pavages Chenail.

We would also like to acknowledge the contributions of our sponsors and friends of the Foundation: Pardeux E-learning, Séma-Media-sonorisation, Pascale Lecomte -photographer and Claudia Baillargeon from Web-Diffusion.

Some 30 exhibitors were also on hand to promote their goods and services, and they offered various treats to the guests in attendance.  A spontaneous silent auction organized by the exhibitors was also able to raise $1,510 for the Foundation.

Muthins, Que de bouchées, Las Olas Catering, Four o’Clock and Amaro were kind enough to offer the meals for the day.

The day ended with the Foundation’s annual raffle draw.  More than $7,750 in prizes were shared amongst the winners, including a $5,000 travel voucher from Voyage Régence, a $1,250 weekend getaway at Auberge Godefroy, a $1,000 weekend getaway at Auberge du Lac-à-l’Eau-Claire, a $300 Cardio Plein Air membership and a $195 Fitbit watch.
