MONTRÉAL, Jan. 23, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - As part of the 35th edition of the Fête des neiges de Montréal, presented by Tim Hortons, Boule de Neige, the popular mascot of the event, will be joining some of his pals to bring a bit of winter magic to youngsters at the CHU Sainte-Justine and Montreal Children's Hospital who are unable to attend the winter festivities at Parc Jean-Drapeau. The visits will take place on Wednesday, January 24, 2018.
During their visit to the hospitals, Boule de Neige and the Pirates will be taking photos with the children, distributing gifts and doing their best to bring some rays of sunshine into the lives of the youngsters and their families facing the adversity of trying to cope with an illness.
The Fête des neiges organization invites members of the media to join the visit of the Montreal Children's Hospital, which will occur tomorrow morning from 9:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. At their arrival, media must go to the lobby of the Hospital and mention that they are coming to cover the Fête des neiges' visit.
