Montreal Community Cares Gala Press Release

Montreal Community Cares Awards Gala:
Let’s Celebrate Our Community Heroes Together!

May 12, 2016, 8 pm at Eric Maclean SJ Centre (Loyola High School)

Montreal, April 26, 2016 – For the 6th consecutive year, the Montreal Community Cares (MCC) Awards Gala will honour 17 individuals and organizations that are making a difference in our city.

Created with the mission to promote and celebrate community engagement, the MCC Awards have paid tribute to some 90 Montreal community champions since 2011, and have helped build bridges among the city’s many different groups.

Denburk Reid, President and Founder of the Montreal Community Cares Foundation, explains: “Our message is simple – Be the spark, make it matter! That’s the gala’s theme and it’s what all of us need to be doing all year, every year – be the spark for community engagement in ourselves and others to make our city a better place to live and raise our families.”

The Gala will be an evening of celebration and entertainment where local heroes, most of them ordinary citizens, receive the recognition they deserve. This year’s Honorary Gala Chairperson is William Hlibchuk, partner at the global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright.

Here’s a chance for Montrealers to buy a ticket and celebrate community engagement alongside public figures, celebrities and athletes while supporting this great community organization. Funds raised by the gala will go towards supporting the Montreal Community Cares Foundation’s youth programs. The Foundation’s mission is: “To empower our youth by developing their leadership skills through our programs, workshops and events, and by building bridges between communities. Our youth hold the key to Montreal’s future.”
