On October 29, over 700 professionals and managers from the Montreal business sector attended the annual benefit concert for the Fondation OMHM and Éducaide at the Pierre-Mercure Room in Montreal. For a third consecutive year, Frédéric Soucy, President of COGIR Management Corporation, agreed to serve as honorary co-chair of this event.

For the concert, Vincent Vallières and his fellow musicians gave a remarkable musical performance to celebrate the academic perseverance of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. The event raised $120,000 to concretely support youth by encouraging them to broaden their horizons and pursue their dreams. 

Inspiring students also shared stories about how much support from the Fondation OMHM and Éducaide has made a tangible and positive impact in their lives. Their touching testimonials stressed the importance of the benefit concert as well as the mission of these two organizations that have helped them.
