Twelve women unite to pro­mote heart health

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier

As the hon­orary god­mother, Collette Roy Laroche, mayor of Lac Me­gan­tic, is invit­ing the en­tire pop­u­la­tion to the 7th edi­tion of the Gala de la

Robe Rouge, tak­ing place on June 5th at the Granada Theatre, in Sher­brooke, to raise money for the Heart and Stroke Foun­da­tion. About thirty per­form­ers will hit the stage to raise aware­ness and put a spot­light on the re­al­ity of women and heart health.

The Odyssea vo­cal en­sem­ble will ap­pear dur­ing the first part of the show, fea­tur­ing the mu­sic of pop­u­lar films. Then spec­ta­tors will be trans­ported to Italy with a per­for­mance by Ni­cola Cic­cone.

Twelve in­flu­en­tial women will proudly wear a red dress for the evening to show their sup­port for the cause. They are: Collette Roy Laroche, mayor of Lac Me­gan­tic, Louise Bilodeau of Ray­mond, Chabot Grant Thorn­ton; Is­abelle Blais of Pieces

Auto An­gus; Is­abelle Fau­teux of Uniprix; Nathalie Gagnon of Remises Gagnon; Ma­gog mayor Vicki May Hamm; Guy­laine Labbe of the RBC; Genevieve La­gace of Pur Noisetier; nurse An­dree-Anne Lussier; Jacqueline Ma­her of Cre­ations Jade; Maitre Nancy Pelchat; and Bren­dalee Pi­iro­nen of the Wales Home.

Why the red dress? Be­cause this sym­bol evokes fem­i­nin­ity, strength and con­fi­dence, and it is the of­fi­cial sym­bol of the cam­paign.
