The Challenge VP, a virtual auction that took place from November 24 to December 16, was a great success. More than twenty prizes for which the proceeds were intended for the Montreal Heart Institute Foundation, found buyers. We are proud to announce that the third edition of this auction raised an impressive sum of $54,191.
We would like to highlight the collaboration and thank our partners, National Bank Financial – Wealth Management and the Vo-Dignard Provost Group, without whom this project would not have been so successful. A warm thank you to the donors who offered the prizes, each more prestigious than the last. Finally, we would like to thank all those who bet on the prizes offered in support of the Montreal Heart Institute Foundation.
The amount raised will help support the most promising research projects of the Montreal Heart Institute. Your generosity makes a huge difference in the lives of people with cardiovascular disease. On behalf of all sensitive hearts, thank you!
