Success for the Institut du cancer de Montréal
September 25, 2015, was the date of the fourth annual Casino contre le Cancer benefit organized by the Institut du cancer de Montréal and presented by Giorgio Armani. The event raised $150,000 for research into cancer immunotherapy.
Casino contre le Cancer benefitted from the commitment of around twenty celebrities, such as Guy A. Lepage, Jean-Thomas Jobin, DJ Yo-C, and Jérôme Ferrer, to the cause. For a second year, the Relais & Châteaux chef concocted a 5-star menu for the 250 VIP guests.
A total of 800 elite guests assembled in the ballrooms for a magical evening that included a VIP poker tournament, a performance by dancers from the École supérieure de ballet du Québec, a silent auction and dancing till the wee hours. Everyone agreed that the benefit was an immense success!
