Opening the fundraising season, the Grand Bal des Vins-Cœurs was held virtually on Thursday, September 9, with generous philanthropists from the Montreal business community. The 21st edition of the Montreal Heart Institute Foundation’s signature event raised $1,002,040 for cardiovascular health.
Throughout this festive evening hosted by Julie du Page, networking, a gourmet meal by Fairmont Queen Elizabeth chef Baptiste Peupion and artistic performances by Cirque du Soleil and Florence K were on the agenda. Attendees reiterated, in the comfort of their homes, their support for the Foundation’s mission and cause, and their commitment to advancing cardiovascular medicine.
