ABOUT THE EVENT
Fundraising records were broken at our 19th annual Sports Celebrity Breakfast on Sunday, June 18, as we raised over $400,000 for seniors in crisis!
The Sports Celebrity Breakfast is the signature fundraising event of the CJCS Foundation and a much-beloved annual celebration of community leaders, sports heroes, and legends, all of whom come together to raise funds for “Seniors in Crisis.”
We know that one of the top issues seniors continue to face are the challenges with global inflation, which is raising the costs of basic necessities like groceries. With the funds raised from this event, more targeted measures can be put into place via the Cummings Centre to help Montreal seniors who need it most.
At this year’s event, we celebrated 30 years since the Montreal Canadiens won the Stanley Cup with Sports Personality of the Year: Former Habs Captain, Habs coach and Hockey Hall of Famer – Guy Carbonneau! Guy was surrounded by former teammates, Benoit Brunet and Vincent Damphousse, former GM Serge Savard, and ex-President Ronald Corey.
We were proud to include Guest of Honour Sylvan Adams, philanthropist, businessman and community leader, Dennis “El Presidente” Martinez, Expos Baseball Legend, and Chantal Machabée, Larry Fredericks Media Award recipient and current VP of Communications for the Canadiens, amongst our list of Honourees.
The event took place on Sunday, June 18, 2023 at Le Jardin Royalmount to a crowd of over 350 attendees.
