Bal des lumières


Please see event website:

The Mental Illness Foundation, the Douglas Mental Health University Institute Foundation, and the Louis-H. Lafontaine Hospital Foundation, University Mental Health Institute invite you to the first edition of Bal des lumières. As Québec’s largest fundraising event for mental health, Bal des lumières will put the cause of mental health on the map.

On March 20, 2013, 800 guests at the Bell Centre will carry the light for mental health.

With $ 1 million as the fundraising objective, net proceeds from Bal des lumières will be invested in three projects that will have a major impact on the mental health of our families, friends and colleagues. Among them is the Centre for Innovation in Mental Health at the Douglas Institute.

Urban, trendy and unique, Bal des lumières will enchant its audience. Normand Brathwaite and Anne-Marie Withenshaw will be the MC’s for the evening. They will be joined onstage by a range of entertainers, including Marc Hervieux, one of the most internationally sought-after Québec vocal artists, the "Brathwaite and friends" band, and other well-known performers such as: Julie Massicotte, Élizabeth Blouin Brathwaite, Kim Richardson, Sylvie Desgroseilliers, and Stéphanie Bédard.
