The 13th edition of Un Noël Pour Tous Foundation benefit dinner was held November 27 at the restaurant-bar Le Sunny’s. The evening, hosted by actor Jean Petitclerc, raised $60,200. The mission of Un Noël Pour Tous Foundation is to offer Christmas stockings to children from underprivileged families in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region, whose ages range from birth to 17 years. Since 2007, more than 4,600 Christmas stockings have been distributed. “We experienced so many emotions during our supper on November 27,” said Viviane Quane, Chair of the Board of Directors. “Raising such an amount of money is incredible and allows us to bring the magic of Christmas to more children. We are deeply touched by people’s generosity. We have incredible partners who, year after year, are there to support us. On behalf of our board of directors, I sincerely thank them!” The distribution of Christmas stockings is done in conjunction with that of Christmas baskets organized by the parishes. The cities that benefit from the support of the Foundation are Vaudreuil-Dorion, Pincourt, Île-Perrot, Hudson and Rigaud. [if !supportLineBreakNewLine] [endif]
