27 Mar Alithya, a proud partner of the Lighthouse Children and Families
On Tuesday, March 19th 2019, the Lighthouse Children and Families hosted its annual cocktail reception at the Parquet de la Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, in Montreal. Over 550 guest attended the event, where a total of $550,263 was raised. As a Silver Partner, Alithya helped make this event a resounding success in order to support children with serious illnesses and their families.
“This year again, we are extremely proud to have had the chance to contribute to this fantastic cause as a partner. Congratulations to all the volunteers and organizers who are so invested, year after year. All these sick children need the generosity of everyone who can contribute. This is a small gesture on our part, but if we all do our fair share, we will be able to provide concrete assistance to those who need it most,” said Éric Banville, Alithya’s Senior VP for Quebec.
The evening celebrating the Lighthouse’s 20th anniversary was also an opportunity for the many guests to rediscover the history of the organization in a warm and emotional atmosphere, thanks to performances by Ariane Moffatt and by Jarrod Takle, from Montreal’s National Circus School.
Over the past 6 years, these annual events have raised over 3 million dollars, helping the Lighthouse’s fund its activities and develop its expertise to provide high-quality respite, comfort and personalized care to critically ill children and their families.
