A first recognition cocktail for Foundation donors


March 5, 2024

On February 29, the Fondation Cité de la Santé officially launched its first Recognition Cocktail to show its gratitude to loyal donors and volunteers who, over the years, have given tirelessly and unstintingly to the Foundation. This tribute evening was made possible with the support of our partner Résidence Le Marronnier.

That evening, our General Manager, André Malacket, underlined the importance of donors' contributions to the Foundation's actions and projects. He emphasized that Laval's population is growing rapidly, and that the need for social services and healthcare is great. A message to remember: the destination of donations can be multiple and suitable for everyone. All donations, large and small, are important and make a real difference," added Mr. Malacket. He warmly thanked everyone present. The cocktail party was the first of several donor recognition events. To conclude the cocktail, the Foundation offered prizes to donors and volunteers to recognize their remarkable gestures.
