On November 21, École d’entrepreneurship de Beauce was the setting for the third edition of the prestigious cocktail dinner, held to benefit Fondation jeunesse Chaudière-Appalaches. Serving as honorary chair of the event was Rémi Fortin, partner at the Saint-Georges and Saint-Ephrem office.

Mr. Fortin spoke to the newspaper L’Éclaireur Progrès about his involvement: “I have already noticed the benefits of this activity, where participants can also do networking. From birth, children do not all have the same status or similar realities. They must be given a helping hand so they can take their place in society.”

About 120 business people from the region took part in this event, which raised $13,700 to support youth at risk.
