Montréal Passion Vin 2018

The Montréal Passion Vin Weekend of Festivities Made Quite a Splash for its 17th Edition: The Event Raised $1,475,184!

What a beautiful weekend of festivities for the 17th edition of Montréal Passion Vin on November 9th and 10th! We shared some wonderful moments over the course of this outstanding weekend. Thanks to your participation, and especially your generosity, we raised $1,475,184 for the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont Foundation.

These funds will enable our researchers and doctors to invest themselves fully in the development of healing cells, revolutionary treatments that are able to cure certain cancers and will soon help with other incurable diseases.

Thank you so much, we look forward to seeing you again next year!

Help us revolutionize cancer treatments!

By current estimates, by 2025, 60% of patients with advanced cancer will be able to be cured using immunotherapy, an innovative, non-toxic and highly effective treatment that will not only control cancer symptoms, but also cure the disease itself!

HMR’s researchers are recognized worldwide for their expertise in immunotherapy and cellular therapy, two approaches that harness the power of the patient’s immune system and cells to develop customized care and treatments for each individual patient. Their innovative research could very well revolutionize cancer care.

Our researchers need special facilities and highly specialized equipment so that their invaluable discoveries can be turned into accessible treatments for more patients. Help us grow our ability to develop the many therapeutic applications of this medicine of the future!


A word from the Chair of the organizing committee

« Dear wine lovers, it is such a privilege and a great honor for me to chair the organization of this fundraising event which gathers passionate and generous philanthropists for a crucial cause : the development of innovative cancer treatments. The Organizing Committee is working hard to offer you an outstanding program for this new 2018 edition. Join us : your participation is a source of hope for patients and the HMR Foundation. »
