Les Canadiennes de Montreal

On Saturday, March 10, 2018, Les Canadiennes de Montreal came together with the Cedars Cancer Foundation and the MUHC Foundation to raise sizable funds for the Wellness Initiative of the Breast Clinic.
The arena was packed with all factions of the Montreal community looking to support this worthy cause. The game began with a ceremony which introduced Dr. Sarkis Meterissian, Director of the Breast Clinic, Cedars Cancer Foundation board chair, Mr. Mark Saykaly as well as breast cancer survivors, including Ms. Judy Martin, founder of “the Bell” Fund and the Cedars Cancer Foundation Comfort Kit Program.

Les Canadiennes played their hearts out and beat the Calgary Inferno 4-0!

For the 8th year in a row, Les Canadiennes organized a large silent auction featuring over 90 items primarily made up of team memorabilia. All funds raised throughout the evening contributed to the over $70,000 that has been raised by the Les Canadiennes organization in support of the Breast Clinic since the event’s inception. This year’s Pink in the Rink raised an incredible funds towards the betterment of the lives of Montreal’s women who depend upon the Breast Clinic.
