A Premier Event at the Château Laurier
At the Benefit Soiree of 2013, we are honoured to host the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean as our keynote speaker. An award-winning journalist and former Italian professor, she served as the 27th Governor General and Commander-in-Chief of Canada. Currently, Madame Jean is Co-Chair and Co-Founder with her husband, Mr. Jean-Daniel Lafond, of the Michaëlle Jean Foundation. She is also the UNESCO Special Envoy for Haiti and Chancellor of the University of Ottawa.
All proceeds from this year’s Soirée Benefit will go to the Fondation Michaëlle Jean Foundation (FMJF), which works to empower youth across Canada to use the arts to transform disenfranchised communities.
