A successful golf tournament thanks to your generosity!
On August 23 at the Islesmere Golf Club was held the 2018 edition of our annual benefit golf tournament. Thanks to our generous sponsors, to the proceeds of the auctions and to the participants, we raised nearly $ 110,000 for the development of Jeunesses Musicales Canada's activities.
Nearly a hundred golfers and music enthusiasts gathered on the greens for a friendly game, followed by a cocktail hour and a gourmet meal. Guests also had the opportunity to hear the tenor Marcel D'Entremont, who has toured with JMC, accompanied by Louise-Andrée Baril at the piano. The evening ended with an auction which allowed several guests to leave with lots offered by our prestigious partners.
Let us remind you that the Jeunesses Musicales Canada Foundation's golf tournament raises funds for Jeunesses Musicales Canada and their mission to promote classical music and allow young Canadian talents to shine. They offer to nearly 60,000 youths the chance to expand their musical universe and discover the wonder of a classical music concert. They also support over 90 musicians each year in developing their careers through various series of concerts, opera productions and scholarship programs.
Stay tuned for the date of our next tournament.
