Autumn '21 Event
Mental Health Matters
With COVID-19 restrictions relaxing, we were able to have our first hybrid event and it was a success! With members in person at the Segal Centre as well as many on-line, we heard from 3 worthy charities supporting Mental Health in Montreal: Yellow Door, Douglas Foundation and AMI- Quebec. Our membership voted to donate our collective donation of $15 330 to the Yellow Door, a local non profit helping to break social isolation across all generations of Montrealers.
Inaugural Spring '21 Event
Our inaugural event was virtual due to COVID-19 restrictions. Despite launching amidst the pandemic, we had nearly 100 members in attendance on zoom. Our first social cause: Empowering Women. We heard from our 3 deserving charity finalists: The Native Women's Shelter, Pavillon Patricia Mackenzie and Pavillon Marguerite de Champlain. Our membership elected to donate our collective donation of $14 500 to Pavillon Marguerite de Champlain, a women's shelter on the southshore supporting women and children who are fleeing domestic violence.
Kids & Teens
Our February event was virtual due to another COVID-19 wave. We streamed the event from the beautiful Atwater Club. We heard from 3 wonderful charities supporting Kids & Teens: Pour 3 Points, Gender Creative Kids and Le Phare. The membership voted and Pour 3 Points, an organization supporting underprivileged youth by training sports coaches, was the elected recipient of our $17 000 donation.
