The Ball for The Children’s 2018

The Ball for the Children’s

The 18th annual Ball for the Children’s was held at Windsor Station on June 1st, 2017. Hundreds of business and philanthropic leaders strongly committed to supporting child health came together for the event held under the leadership of Mr. Grégoire Baillargeon, BMO Capital Markets, and Ms. Marie-Josée Lamothe, Google Canada, the event themed The Heart of Montreal raised $1,017,725. Funds raised at the Ball will go directly to the Healthy Kids Fund.

It was also the occasion to showcase our Award of Excellence winners – hospital staff and volunteers who were recognized for their outstanding contribution to the well-being of sick children and their loved ones. One of the evening’s most inspiring moments was when young Award of Excellence winner Léa-Marie Filion, 12, took the stage. “When we become discouraged, Léa-Marie winds us back up! She helps us as much as we help her,” said her parents, Donald and Sophie.
