These two corporate lunch events, presented simultaneously at Hotel Bonaventure Montreal, allowed more than 1,000 guests to live an outstanding experience to support adolescent prevention of alcohol and substance abuse while participating in networking activities.

A special thanks to the Honorary President of the 24th edition, Jonathan Durocher, President of Banque Nationale Investissements, and the three Honorary Patrons Jean Bureau, Philippe Champagne and Luc Paiement, for their generous commitment in the WHO’S GOT PASSION Challenge with five passionate teens : Éléonore and Mathilde (singing), Jean-Félix (guitar), Charles (skateboard) and Justine (horseback riding). A special thanks to Eva Verreault, Director of Sales and Clients relations at Croesus Finansoft, for her generous involvement as Honorary President of the first edition of the Festin d’huîtres de la Relève.

Finally, a HUGE THANKS to all partners, participants and volunteers that made these events a great success !

See you next year

Addiction is a social problem and our children are not immune to becoming addicted.

Donate to support the cause

Here is the impact of your gesture

Thanks to your commitment, at the end of this school year we will have been able to prevent drug addiction with 70 000 teenagers in high schools across Quebec.

Since we have been preventing teens, we have seen a 16.5% drop in youth addiction problems.

Prevention Works!

Who's Got Passion

Who's Got Passion

WHO’S GOT PASSION is a challenge that has made four businessmen step out of their confort zone for the cause, as they learned a new passion from high school students, while raising 27 087$ in donation for Fondation Jean Lapointe.

On November 16, in front of more than 1,000 invitees, Jonathan Durocher and Jean Bureau were on stage with Éléonore, Mathile and Jean-Félix to take part in an electrifying performance of the song Beat It.

Philippe Champagne and Luc Paiement, Honorary Patrons of the event,  also presented the results of their efforts with Charles and Justine, with the help of video footage that was unveiled on November 16th.
