Twelve women unite to promote heart health
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.
