ANNUAL BALL FOR THE CHILDREN’S

BIG HEARTED BENEFIT MAKES ITS MARK

One of the spring summer social season’s favourites, the Annual Ball For The Children’s, made magic once again at Windsor Station, raising sizeable funds, an epic $1 017 725, for the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation.

It also made a sizeable impression on guests, boasting a “heart of Montreal” theme in celebration of Montreal’s 375th anniversary, that wowed from start to finish with flourishes like a flavourful menu by the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth, brimming silent auction, nonstop dance-play,and moving presentation of Award of Excellence winners.

A magical night that went the distance. FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT, SOME POWER PICS.
