Little Black dresses raise $30,000 for CHUS
The first edition of the Petite robe noire fundraiser for the CHUS Foundation took place Thursday evening on the Grand Cru cruise ship on Lake Memphremagog. One hundred and seventy passengers took part, women only, to raise the money which was earmarked for the Fonds de l’Esperance de la Fondation du CHUS that helps the families of children hospitalized at the CHUS. The CHUS Foundation plans to repeat the event next year on the same date.
