The 12th edition of the foundation ‘Un Noël Pour Tous’ fundraising dinner was held December 5 at Sunny's Restaurant & Bar in Vaudreuil-Dorion. This evening, hosted by actor Jean Petitclerc, raised $45,000.
The ‘Un Noël Pour Tous’foundation's mission is to offer Christmas stockings to children from poor families in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region, whose ages range from birth to 17 years. Since 2007, more than 4000 Christmas stockings have been distributed.
"On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank everyone who participated in our fundraising dinner and our generous sponsors and donors. Some of them support us since our beginnings 12 years ago,” Said Viviane Quane, Chair of the Board.
Christmas stockings are distributed in conjunction with Christmas baskets organized by the parishes. The cities supported by the foundation are Vaudreuil-Dorion, Pincourt, Île-Perrot, Hudson and Rigaud. "The best gift for board members is to receive the parents' testimonials and realize that the work accomplished has allowed magic to enter all these homes! All parents want to see their child unpack a gift and the foundation offers this opportunity,” added Quane.
