/R E P E A T -- Only 10 days until the return of the Grande Party Ferreira!/

    Ferreira Café continues its standout summer tradition of hosting a
    gastronomical barbecue

    MONTREAL, June 9 /CNW Telbec/ - The highly anticipated second annual
Grande Party Ferreira to benefit the Sainte-Justine Hospital Foundation-a
gourmet fundraising barbecue organized by the renowned Portuguese
restaurant-will take place on June 18, at 6 p.m. With spectacular
entertainment on the program throughout the night, including performances by
Cirque Eloize, this gala evening, right in the heart of downtown Montreal,
will be the premiere event of summer 2009.

    Looking back at the memorable 2008 edition

    During last summer's festivities, more than 250 guests and restaurant
regulars, including the Montreal Canadiens, Grégory Charles, Corneille, Ima,
Mobile, Caroline Néron, and many other big names, celebrated and danced on the
red carpet, under the cover of elegant white tents. They savoured a
mouth-watering menu of grilled fare, offered by chefs Marino Tavares and Eric
Gonzalez, accompanied by some delicious Veuve Clicquot bubbly and Johnnie
Walker scotch. As well, all were treated to an stunning exhibition of luxury
cars, courtesy of BMW Laval. It was an urban night not to be forgotten, which
only the 2009 edition will be able to top!

    Contributing to the Sainte-Justine Hospital Foundation

    During the evening, with the cream of society gathered together in the
restaurant's chic laneway, Carlos Ferreira, Ferreira Café's founder-owner,
will hand over a check to the Sainte-Justine Hospital Foundation for the money
raised in 2009 through various charitable initiatives, such as the 13 years of
generosity campaign. As a member of the Sainte-Justine Hospital Foundation's
board of directors, he is happy that so many of his friends have joined him in
this cause, which is to improve the quality of care given to sick children
while financing research, training, and programs promoting health.

    13 years of generosity campaign

    Ferreira Café launched its 13 year of generosity campaign last January to
celebrate its 13-year anniversary. As part of its ongoing commitment to the
Sainte-Justine Hospital Foundation, Café Ferreira will donate $1 for every
meal served in 2009 and will hold its annual fundraising activities: the
Executives' Gala and the Grande Party Ferreira. Ferreira Café's objective is
to raise $100 000 for the Sainte-Justine Hospital Foundation through these
three activities.
