The 21st edition of The Children’s Foundation ball raised $1,100,625 to help get young patients back on their feet!

After a two-year hiatus, Montreal’s business and community leaders, philanthropists, government ministers and other generous Montrealers attended The Bal des tannants for The Children’s on May 12. Because a bratty kid is a healthy kid, the $1,100,625 raised at this year’s ball will help fund the most urgent needs at the Hospital so sick children in its care can return to their energetic, sometimes even bratty, selves.
