$236,429 Raised By The “À Votre Santé!” Champagne Event With Dominique Michel And Her Guests


Festivities kicked off on Thursday, November 9, with the À Votre Santé! benefit—Dodo’s big evening—which helped raise $236,429. For the 6th edition of this event, created for and by HMR Foundation spokeswoman Dominique Michel, some 400 guests gathered at the Cruise Terminal along with a number of Dodo’s friends from the entertainment world, including Patrice L’Écuyer, Marc Hervieux, and Lulu Hughes.

This year, the very popular Champagne evening presented three well-renowned vintages. The famous Bollinger champagne, presented in person by Karl-Frédéric Reuter, was in the spotlight to the pleasure of great wine enthusiasts and fans of James Bond, who has enjoyed none other than “the most British of all champagnes” for the past 50 years. Sparkling ambiance, elegant hors d’oeuvres and a breathtaking view of the St. Lawrence: All combined to celebrate life in a most memorable way while contributing to the improvement of cancer patient care.

Deeply moved, Dominique Michel wanted to thank her guests: “What I wish to say is that this campaign was a joint effort. Supporting Dodo means supporting every patient at the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont. It means giving each one a little courage and hope… just like I received. I wish to thank the media, the public, the business community and especially, especially the committee of volunteer women who agreed to organize this magnificent evening. Thanks to you, I can say: Mission accomplished!”
