An evening that was chaired by André Drolet, Member of Parliament for Jean-Lesage, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister responsible for Small and Medium Enterprises, Regulatory Relief and Regional Economic Development.

For this show, she called upon professional artists and graduates of the professional training program. A colorful evening where more than $ 10,000 was raised for the cause.
