Led by famed television and radio journalist, broadcaster and columnist Marianna Simeone, this year’s edition tasted the most prestigious vineyards in the past decade. Highlight of the evening: the statement from Catherine Kozminski, French teacher and mother of the adorable Maëlle, dealing with mild autism and myasthenia gravis. She and her daughter were able to go on stagefor a moment filled with emotion listening to this 13 year old girl’s story of fighting with courage. Her and so many others future depends on advances in pediatric research.

Nearly 200 guests, passionate about great wines, met at the Crystal Banquet Hall, evidence that the cause of sick children is taken to heart. And for good reason: "Do not forget that it is children who make up the world of tomorrow; offer them every opportunity to develop in the best possible conditions,” honorary president of the evening Sylvie Demers reminds us.

The Foundation of Stars would like to thank all the partners who made this event a success: TD Canada Trust, BDO Canada LLP / s.r.S.E.N.C.R.L and Dunton Rainville.
