Guests and donors on hand for the event truly stepped up to the plate, helping us raise $242,000 in support of pediatric research!
This year’s event whisked participants straight to the heart of Italy. Guests were charmed by the spectacularly delicate products offered by Domaine Fattoria Carpineta Fontalpino, a vineyard located near Siena in the Tuscany region and represented by co-owner Ms. Gioia Cresti. The guests were then accompanied by Mr. Giacomo Neri, owner of the renowned Casanova Di Neri vineyard in Montalcino, acknowledged as one of the world’s top producers of Brunello.
We would like to thank the campaign committee, chaired by Alain Auclair and Alain Giasson, for making this event possible.
We would also be remiss if we did not mention and thank Véronique Rivest for having organized this event with efficiency and poise. Thanks also to our star Jonathan, a brave young man who shared the story of how he valiantly battled his disease alongside Dr. Perreault, whose research activities were financially supported by the Foundation of Stars in 2018.
We also want to warmly thank our auctioneer Laurent Berniard, who brought his reputed sense of humour to the table! And lastly, sincere thanks to all of our volunteers and others whose participation helped make this evening such a resounding success! Working together, as this event demonstrated, makes it possible to further support pediatric research!
This year’s auction once again won over our guests, particularly the amateurs of vintage wines.
Tkank's to our partners
