Canadian Red Cross Annual Fundraising Event
Thanks to the exceptional ongoing support of Ms. Michèle Dionne, wife of the Premier of Québec, the Canadian RED CROSS, Québec Division has held a major fundraising event every year since 2005. Each year, a co-chair is chosen from among the most influential business leaders in Québec, and leading citizens from across Québec are invited to participate. In just a few short years, this event has grown to become the most important Red Cross fundraiser in Canada.
All the proceeds are used to support the mission of the Canadian Red Cross, Québec Division: a mission of reparation and response carried out by devoted volunteers who provide first aid services to families, children, the elderly and the vulnerable in the event of fires, floods or evacuations.
The 2012 annual Red Cross benefit event will be held on Thursday, April 5 at Montréal’s Windsor Station “Salle des pas perdus”. This year’s event will be chaired by Ms. Martine Turcotte, Vice Chair, Québec at Bell Canada. Ms. Michèle Dionne will be the honorary president.
