A SUCCESSFUL FIRST BENEFIT DINNER
Magog, June 10, 2019
The Christian Vachon Foundation warmly thanks all those who took part in the very first annual benefit dinner on June 6 at the Club Hermitage in Magog. This new activity supported by RBC comes on top of the Relais Desjardins du Lac Memphrémagog in order to diversify the Foundation's sources of funding and to implement its development plan for the next five years.
The objective set for this first edition was $50,000. In addition to a full house with 180 guests, the evening ultimately raised $128,000 from the Magog and Estrie business community. This sum is all the more precious since it will be used to support all the needs of students sponsored in more than 35 schools in the Eastern Townships, the result of a collective effort based on the contribution of several new private partners.
This is only the very beginning of the Foundation's efforts to raise the $6.8 million needed to deploy its services in Montérégie.
We also had the pleasure of counting on the help and generosity of two Quebec personalities for the entertainment of the evening:
- Mr. Marcel Leboeuf, Speaker and animator;
- Mr. Vincent Vallières, Quebec singer-songwriter.
Thank you to all the new sponsors of the schools of the Foundation.
