With the combination of a great cause, tirelessly dedicated committee, and throngs of local support from the city’s young movers and shakers, it’s easy to understand how the Bal du Mont-Royal has grown to become one of the city’s most well-attended fundraisers and ‘must-not-miss’ networking frenzies for MTL’s young leaders.


Proof positive was in the soirée’s 13th edition as it recently took over several spaces at the Montreal Science Center, for what proved to be a hot ‘Spring Fling’ attended by 1200 strong. Organized by the CHU Sainte Justine Foundation, and animated by Anouk Meunier, the theme this year was POP ART, with installations, staff outfits, wild hair pieces, creatively lit open bars, a new lounge room, and a live tweet board projected for all to read completing a modern interpretation of Andy Warhol’s famous Factory.


And if place and space wasn’t incentive enough to attend, new this year was a VIP CHALLENGE, where teams could raise funds for the hospital’s Centre of Excellence for Newborn Intensive Care and, in the process, have a chance of winning coveted prizes such as a Club Med vacation, private suite for 8 to attend a Montreal Canadiens Game, and a VIP evening for 8 at l'Assommoir Notre-Dame.  



Cut to the action where the dance floor warmed up with the beats of DJ RR Kelly, followed by none other than Misstress Barbarawho kept guests going strong until last call. Between sets, the final tally was announced: more than 290 000$ to help finance Sainte-Justine's Centre of Excellence for Newborn Intensive Care.




With staying power like that we can’t wait to see what they come with for #14 – consider the date already booked!
