A pres­ti­gious evening to ben­e­fit the West Is­land Pal­lia­tive Care Res­i­dence

Montreal Times - - Community -

The Gourmet Din­ner & Wine Auc­tion of the West Is­land Pal­lia­tive Care Res­i­dence which was held on Oc­to­ber 5, 2017 at the beau­ti­ful Mon­treal Air­port Mar­riott In-Ter­mi­nal Ho­tel, raised $93,100 for the Res­i­dence.

The trendy at­mos­phere of the Mon­treal Air­port Mar­riott In-Ter­mi­nal Ho­tel and its ex­cel­lent in­no­va­tive cui­sine was the per­fect back­drop for this ex­clu­sive event. Over 120 guests shared two com­mon in­ter­ests: a pas­sion for fine din­ing and wines and a pro­found com­mit­ment to the West Is­land Pal­lia­tive Care Res­i­dence.

“Pal­lia­tive care is quickly be­com­ing one of the most press­ing is­sues in our so­ci­ety. Car­ing for the ter­mi­nally ill is about mak­ing life palat­able, treat­ing symp­toms, and en­abling pa­tients to live their fi­nal days in dig­nity, com­fort and in a home-like en­vi­ron­ment. We could not do what we do at the West Is­land Pal­lia­tive Care Res­i­dence with­out the sup­port of so many car­ing and gen­er­ous in­di­vid­u­als who sup­port events such as our Gourmet Din­ner & Wine Auc­tion. We need to raise more than $3.5 mil­lion each year to meet our fi­nan­cial needs. We are so grate­ful for the sup­port of our com­mu­nity” said Teresa Del­lar, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the West Is­land Pal­lia­tive Care Res­i­dence.

Ma­jor spon­sors of the event in­cluded: Jaris­lowsky Fraser Lim­ited, Anne Myles, RBC In­vestor & Trea­sury Ser­vices, Mon­treal Air­port Mar­riott In-Ter­mi­nal Ho­tel and Italvine.
