This week you can party in style alongside public figures, celebrities and athletes while honouring engaged and hard working Montrealers of all ages and from all parts of our great city.

The Montreal Community Cares Foundation (MCCF) President and Founder, Denburk Reid, says: “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.”
