On October 20, the highly anticipated second edition of the Grand Banquet de l’extraordinaire, raised an incredible $1.3 million for the future of the CHUM and its excellent care. These funds will go to purchasing cutting‑edge technology equipment, improving care services and implementing world-class research initiatives, among other things.
An ode to beauty and the ophthalmology department teams
With over 450 guests in attendance, “an ode to beauty” was the theme for this year’s artistic and culinary experience—already one of Montréal’s hottest philanthropic events. The goal was to celebrate the incredible work performed at the CHUM, and particularly within the department of ophthalmology.
It was an evening of incredible food crafted by renowned chefs Darren MacLean and Baptiste Peupion, captivating performances by Quebec-based singer-songwriter Matt Holubowski and contemporary dance duo Willow, a touching account from a CHUM patient, and several other surprises.
Pomerleau was proud to present the Bourse de l’extraordinaire to the ophthalmology department teams. Guests also got to learn more through an exhibit that paid tribute to ophthalmology, presented by Alcon.
