Lachine Hospital Foundation
Lachine Foundation supporters came out in great numbers to the Airport Marriott Hotel for the Foundation’s Venetian Ball which was hosted by esteemed TVA Nouvelles anchor Sophie Thibault. Guests were treated to epicurean delights and fine wines with a northern Italian accent, along with the music of a live band. All attendees received a mask upon their arrival as part of the masquerade theme and to add to the fun of the evening.
Special guests included Lachine mayor Claude Dauphin, Dorval mayor Edgar Rouleau, MUHC President and Executive Director Normand Rinfret, MUHC chairman Claudio Bussandri and renowned Canadian fashion designer Frank Lyman. $150,000 was raised to purchase state-of-the-art medical equipment for the hospital.
The Foundation’s annual community breakfast fundraiser was a great success and hosted over 400 guests at Barbies Restaurant in Dorval. Dozens of door prizes were handed out and to the delight of the children the mounted police were on hand to show off their horses. Dorval mayor Edgar Rouleau and Lachine mayor Claude Dauphin were on hand to mingle with Foundation supporters. The total amount raised was $15,000.
It was a packed house at L’Entrepôt, the state-of-the art concert hall on Lachine’s waterfront, where friends and supporters of the Foundation were taken on a comedic journey by Lachine native André Sauvé, one of Quebec’s top comedians.
Sauvé entertained the audience with his offbeat humour that was presented in the form of short vignettes. Thanks to the support of Spinelli, the event’s major sponsor, $45,000 was raised and will go towards the continued modernization of the hospital.
