The Jewish General Hospital Foundation held its Doctors' Gala honouring Monique F. Leroux, President and CEO, Desjardins Group and benefiting the Lady Davis Institute on November 18, 2015 at ARSENAL, Montreal.

Co-chaired by Stéphane Achard (Desjardins) and Thomas Little (Bell), the elegant black-tie event drew a sell-out crowd of close to 450 guests, including JGH physicians, researchers, nurses, community and hospital leaders, as well as generous supporters and friends of Desjardins and the Jewish General Hospital.

The soirée, coordinated by Annette Goldman and Stephanie Roza of the JGH Foundation, and beautifully produced and designed by Lorne Levitt (Total Events) along with Danielle Bitton (Seal Productions), and Ruth Hubermann (CommDesign) began with an upscale cocktail with hors d'oeuvres galore by Chef Olivier Perret of the Sofitel Montreal. Guests were then ushered into the spectacularly decorated ballroom, for a delicious dinner by Chefs and John Winter Russell.

Following words of welcome offered by Howard Dermer, Chair of the JGH Foundation and Stéphane Achard, guests were wowed by an impressive performance led by well known Montreal singer, Kim Richardson.

Complementing an immensely inspiring video of patient testimonials, created by Neil Oakshott (Eclipse Productions).was a moving and powerful impressionist dance segment. A warm and meaningful tribute to Madame Leroux by her dear friend France Chrétien Desmarais was followed by a beautiful address by our honouree. Rounding out the evening all were offered a sneak preview of the fun and upbeat upcoming “Best of Broadway" show to begin at the Montreal Casino in February 2016.

Proceeds from the Gala will be allocated to medical research at the Lady Davis Institute.

We thank our Lead Sponsor, Desjardins Group, the SAQ and the many individuals, companies and groups whose generosity and commitment have contributed to making the annual JGH Gala one of the most sought-after, memorable and successful fundraising events of the year.
