Little Brothers’ 19th annual IMAX Night Out was held at the Montreal Science Centre on Monday, March 13, 2017. The event co-chairs were Marie-Claude Boisvert, Senior Vice President, Business Services, Desjardins Group, and Alain Lafortune, Executive Vice President, Purchasing and Marketing, Jean Coutu Group. Serving as our honorary patron was Ms. Pierrette Larin, an Elder Friend with Little Brothers. Some 400 members of the business community attended the event. Since its launch in 1999, IMAX Night Out has raised over $1.3 million for Little Brothers.

HELPING LITTLE BROTHERS CONNECT WITH ELDER FRIENDS

Little Brothers’ mission is to welcome and provide support to lonely elders by creating a caring, committed extended family around them, dedicated to alleviating their isolation and being by their side throughout their remaining years.

Some key facts and figures about Little Brothers: 55 years serving the community, 15 chapters throughout Quebec, vacation lodges, 1,900 volunteers, 175,000 volunteer hours devoted to our Elder Friends every year, 1,350 seniors who benefit from our programs and services, 54 employees… and that’s just the beginning!

YOUR CONTRIBUTION MEANS THE WORLD TO LONELY SENIORS

IMAX Night Out raised $149,500 to help fund vacation getaways for our Elder Friends at Juliette Huot Lodge in picturesque Oka, on the shores of Lake of Two Mountains.

Your contribution will have a significant impact on seniors who are otherwise all alone, providing them with a much-needed and much-appreciated opportunity to reconnect with nature and feel like they are part of a family again. In the past year, we gave more than 500 Elder Friends a break from their loneliness in this breathtakingly beautiful setting.
