Congratulations to Martin Deschênes, Chairman of the Partnership Board and Assurance Partner (Montreal), for his recent community involvement as Co-Chair of the Jovia fundraising campaign.
Over $380,000 raised during a “simply glamorous” evening!
This May 6, nearly 700 guests from the business community, healthcare and the arts gathered for the 8th edition of the Jovia Benefit Gala. Véronique Cloutier and Louis Morissette emceed the gala on the theme “Tout simplement glamouristique!” (Simply glamorous!) The event was a real success, raising $386,000 for Jovia, which will be used to deploy the services of therapeutic clowns in Quebec care environments.

To learn more about this event, see the article published in the May 12 edition of Le Journal de Montréal by Rodger Brulotte.
Jovia’s mission is to contribute to improving the quality of life of hospital patients through its two therapeutic clown programs that combine complicity, playfulness and imagination. Jovia aims to integrate therapeutic clowns into the treatment plans of Canadian health care facilities.
