The organizing committee, supported by the an events production company CUBiX, are keeping a few surprises in store for guests.
“I am extremely happy to support the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence Foundation.

For over six years these services have been given free of charge to over 950 terminally-ill patients of all ages who have been cared for with respect and concern for their dignity.
