1,200,000 lucky stars for the kids at the Children’s
Generosity and emotion filled the air at the Windsor Station. Hosted by Gregory Charles, the 19th ball for the Children’s raised an extraordinary $1,200,000 to help sick kids at the Montreal Children's Hospital.
An emotional highlight was the story of Children’s patient Jean-Gilles Gadoury, who stunned the crowd with a breathtaking musical performance.
Guests were treated to a magnificent oyster bar and a gastronomic menu thoughtfully prepared by chefs Derek Dammann (Maison Publique) and David McMillan (Joe Beef), the artistic minds behind new restaurant concept McKiernan.
Gaétan Barrette, Minister of Health and Social Services, as well as Deputy Premier Dominique Anglade, Minister of Economy, Science and Innovation, were also on hand for the celebration.
We thank our Awards of excellence sponsors and Table of Innovation supporters who followed the lead of the Ball’s Honorary President, Sean Finn, Executive Vice-President Corporate Services and Chief Legal Officer of CN.
Special thanks go to our dedicated volunteers and organizing committee for an unforgettable evening!
