MONTREAL, Nov. 3, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Tonight, over 400 guests attended the Soirée SUBLIME de Leucan, presented by RBC Royal Bank, which raised $402,150 for cancer-stricken children. To help Leucan transform cancer into something sublime, guests took part in a spellbinding event where gastronomy and circus arts blended with visual art projects from artist-painter Carol Bernier who rendered the terrible disease of cancer into works of art instilling a sense of hope.
Emmanuel Bilodeau was our brilliant master of ceremonies for this highly emotional evening. Guests gathered around the table to savour a gastronomic menu created by Chef Laurent Godbout from Chez L'épicier. Artists from Cirque Éloize dazzled guests while the works of artist-painter Carole Bernier, sold in support of Leucan, caught everyone's eye!
