MONTREAL – The Montreal Impact Foundation fundraiser event “C’est mieux en bleu”, which took place on March 8, raised $120,000 to help underprivileged children and their families.
Days before the team’s home opener at Olympic Stadium against Seattle, the players from the 2017 edition and the first team’s technical staff were in the audience to support the cause.
Foundation president Carmie Saputo was delighted by the success of the fourth edition of the event, held at the William Gray Hotel.
“Since its early days, our Foundation has been able to accomplish great progress in our community,” declared Carmie Saputo. “It is now renowned for its direct implication in the children’s lives and needs.”
Last year, the event raised $110,000 for the Foundation.
With the money raised on March 8, and thanks to the support from BMO Financial Group, the Foundation has now raised over $1.5M since its launch in 2013.
