It was to a full room that Bruno Pelletier gave a breathtaking performance at the Leonardo Da Vinci Center on December 8th to begin the Christmas celebrations. The traditional benefit concert of the Marie-Clarac Hospital Foundation was a great success, raising more than $100,000.
Under the honorary presidency of Mr. Mariano De Carolis, general manager of the Caisse Populaire Desjardins Canadienne Italienne, this benefit concert will make it possible to purchase new beds to replace the previous ones that have become obsolete. These new beds will contribute to the recovery of patients who wish to regain their autonomy through rehabilitation services adapted to their needs, as well as to ensure the comfort of people at the end of their lives.
In the center, the honorary president of the benefit concert, Mr. Mariano De Carolis, general director of the Caisse Populaire Desjardins Canadienne Italienne, was happy to present a cheque for $100,000 to the general director of Marie-Clarac Hospital, Sister Martine Côté, in the presence of Bruno Pelletier. We recognize around them, from left to right, Mr. Michael Fratianni, president of the board of directors of the Marie-Clarac Hospital Foundation, Ms. Marie-Josée Chouinard, director of the Foundation, Mr. Raymond Paquin, founder of the Foundation, and Ms. Michelina Lavoratore, Director of Personal Services and Business Development of the Caisse Populaire Desjardins Canadienne Italienne.
