On May 31, Children’s Wish Quebec East Chapter (based in Quebec City) hosted a gala evening, dubbed Place aux rêves, to allow donors share in the magical power of a wish. The elegant cocktail reception, held at the Complexe Capitale Hélicoptère, raised the incredible sum of $51,200. It was indeed a dream evening. Within an enchanted forest designed by Profil Vert, guests were treated to gourmet bites from chef Arnaud Marchand, with TVA news anchor, Pierre Jobin, as MC. Some 200 guests were savouring the experience when Eloi, a wish child diagnosed with a brain tumour, shared the magic of his meeting with actor Robert Downey Jr (aka Iron Man). This first-ever event would not have been so successful without the support of volunteers, business leaders and sponsors including Caisse Desjardins Des Rivières, Complexe Capitale Hélicoptère, Chez Boulay - Bistro Boréal, Exceldor, SAQ, Industrial Alliance, Bell, Voyage Transat, Galerie du Meuble, Roulez Passion, Gisèle Boulianne and Centre Vidéotron. Together, they helped to raise enough funds to grant five heartfelt wishes.
