LET’S BOND X HOLT RENFREW’S “IN STYLE WITH HOLTS”

BONDING IN STYLE

It was the kind of Wednesday night Social Gals and Gents dream of: Premier luxury emporium Holt Renfrew opens its doors for a private evening of shopping, gorgeous food and drink abounds on every floor, flash fashion shows dazzle with the best of spring fashion, DJ Thomas H. brings the tunes, and the crowd is as stylish and fabulous as it gets.

Most impressive however is the motivation for the night: To raise funds in support of The Fondation Jeunes en Tête and Douglas Foundation.

Brainbaby of Let’s Bond, a remarkable collective founded by a pack of extraordinary young professional Montrealers with a conscience, events like this one, powered by Holt Renfrew and Audi Popular and presented by RBC, are intended to make a difference for those suffering from mental illness, by raising awareness and acceptance, and providing financial support.

Congrats, and then some, to the eve’s dream team including president CHRIS HARDEN; JEAN-PHILIPPE SHOIRY, ANNA-ISABELLE MORENCY-BOTELLO, LELIA NAIMA VINCENT, BRENDAN BAXTER, CATHERINE BUREAU-LAVALLÉE, SAMUEL ALAIN, NATALIE NADAIRA, PIERRE-LUC DU SAULT, ISABELLE RICHARD, ANNE-CATHERINE SHOIRY, VINCENT LEBRUN-FORTIN, and ASHLEY ROSENBERGER.

Clearly, the future is in good hands.
