MONTREAL, May 2, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - On Monday May 7th, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth hotel will unroll its red carpet in Old-Montreal to mark the 135th anniversary of Accueil Bonneau.
For this celebration day, Accueil Bonneau will put aside its financial preoccupations to focus solely on its original mission since 1877, namely to care, assist and open doors for the homeless and people in need.
The hotel doorman, members of its staff and employees of its Outside Catering service are teaming up to welcome some 600 homeless people in a very special way and celebrate in a festive ambiance with a meal featuring the flavors of Italy.
As well, some of the talented Bonneau artists will offer live painting performances to add color and an artistic sense to the event.
Members of the media are invited to celebrate at Accueil Bonneau.
