On October 18, 2018, over 200 guests attended the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) Foundation’s second annual Enchantée cocktail dinatoire, co-chaired by volunteers Cynthia Price Verreault, JoAnne Kelly Rudy, and Anna Capobianco-Skipworth. The event was held in collaboration with the Cedars Cancer Foundation.
The proceeds of the event, together with recent pledges of support from the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation and the CURE Foundation, total $600,000. The funds will support the MUHC Breast Clinic Wellness and Survivorship Programs.
“The Breast Clinic cares for 15,000 women per year, and it is a referral centre for women across Quebec,” explains Dr. Sarkis Meterissian, Director of the MUHC Breast Clinic. “In addition to the exceptional care women receive, these programs provide prevention, treatment, psychological, and rehabilitation services, including highly-specialized lymphedema care.”
Emcees Leslie Roberts from CJAD and Brigitte Bédard from TVA/LCN entertained guests throughout the evening.
“The continued generosity of our donors and the dedication of our Co-Chairs made Enchantée a tremendous success,” states Julie Quenneville, President of the MUHC Foundation. “We cannot thank them enough for supporting the women and their families who continue in their fight against breast cancer.”
