Open House

MISE À DAY

The Dauphine Foundation will be back, for a 4th year, with its benefit show the Open House of La Dauphine, this time on Tuesday 22  November, from 8 p.m., in the Raoul-Jobin room of the Palais Montcalm. The evening, preceded by a VIP cocktail from 5:30 p.m., will feature Annie Villeneuve, Kim Richardson, Jean Ravel and Christian Marc Gendron, accompanied on stage by four musicians, four choristers and a vocal ensemble of 25 people, the all hosted by Quebec's favorite actress Guylaine Tremblay (picture). This is an important year for La Dauphine as it celebrates its 30th anniversary. Over the years, it has adapted by expanding its service offering according to the changing needs of young people in difficulty in Quebec. For 30 years, La Dauphine has been fulfilling its mission: to welcome 12-35 year olds and support them by taking into account their specific needs in their journey towards full autonomy in order to prevent a deterioration of their situation.

Between us

Founded in 1982, the Marguerite-Jacques Foundation will take advantage of this evening to award its annual scholarships to students pursuing music studies at CEGEP or university.
