First edition of the Rire pour Marvin: an evening filled with joyful connections

June 28 marked the inaugural edition of Rire pour Marvin. The event, where live comedy and networking join forces, was hosted by the Young Leaders Circle and held at the Cabaret Lion d’Or.

Over a hundred participants from some 20 businesses accepted our invitation and helped us celebrate the end of health restrictions. Things were already off to a great start on that lovely summer evening but comedian and host Antoine Durocher really fired up the crowd. No doubt about it, it was an outstanding and exciting event! Many thanks to our generous host Antoine for his infectious enthusiasm, and his remarkable knack for setting things up perfectly for the up-and-coming comedians he had at his side. Our thanks to Suzie Bouchard, Brian Piton and Charles-Olivier Saint-Cyr for their high-spirited performances. The many different numbers and distinctively unique styles livened up this networking cocktail.

$6,500 were raised during this event’s very first edition, thanks in part to Marvin teddy sales and a very popular fifty-fifty draw: over 100 tickets were sold!

Our heartfelt thanks to our sponsors Canva Group and Ninety Two.

This evening would not have been possible without the hard work of our volunteers and the Marie-Vincent team. Thank you!


12th edition of the Souper des CFO Over $280,000 raised to support young victims of sexual violence

On May 11, the 12th edition of the Souper des CFO helped raise over $280,000 to support young victims of sexual violence. Presided by Charles Emond, President of the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, the event returned after a two-year pandemic hiatus. More than 150 guests were on hand for this special evening where they enjoyed a 5-course gourmet dinner prepared by six CFO chefs paired up with top chefs.

Exploring a world of colours and tastes carefully devised by our CFO chefs, guests experienced a succession of sophisticated, distinctive and simply exquisite dishes!

The subdued and elegant ambiance created at Entrepôts Dominion provided a stunning backdrop that members of Montréal’s business community thoroughly enjoyed. Our generous hosts were chef and speaker Louis-François Marcotte and Marie-Vincent’s Head of Philanthropic Development Julien Sola.
