Generosity and emotion filled the air at the Windsor Station where hundreds of business people, major philanthropists, and men and women who work tirelessly each day to help sick children enthusiastically accepted the Foundation’s invitation to attend the 19th edition of the Ball for the Children’s, held on May 17, 2018. Their commitment was clear: the event helped raise over $1,200,000, and our highest net revenue to date. The sum will be donated to the Healthy Kids Fund, allowing the hospital to purchase state-of-the-art medical and surgical equipment, provide ongoing training for staff and finance innovative projects. Amongst the Ball for the Children’s guests, Deputy Premier Dominique Anglade, Minister of Economy, Science and Innovation, attended the event, brilliantly hosted by Gregory Charles.

Stay tuned for the 2019 edition of the Ball for the Children’s!

As the Honorary President of the 2018 Ball for the Children’s, it is my pleasure to invite you to join us on May 17 as we celebrate excellence in pediatric care and support one of Montreal’s most cherished institutions.
