Once more, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is pleased to present the gastronomical supper of the Festival des traditions du monde de Sherbrooke which will take place on Tuesday August 12th on the Festival site, at the Quintal Park, in Sherbrooke.

The event organized on the theme of Kanaval Ayiti will be an opportunity for guests to immerse in Haitian culture and enjoy a typical menu prepared by Chef Yvan Faucher, dance, national costumes, and music from the Caribbean island.

The gastronomical supper is a major fundraising activity for the Festival but also a great opportunity to forge ties in a festive and friendly atmosphere!

Tickets are currently on sale online for $100/person.

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is proud to recognize the remarkable contribution of the cycling team who participated in the 19th edition of the Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau last July 4. The team’s efforts raised $35,000 to fight pediatric cancer.

A team inspired and motivated by Éloïse…

Our team rode the 110 km between Saint-Hyacinthe and Boucherville to help sick children, and especially to support little Éloïse, daughter of Nicole Parent, Senior Consultant, Strategic and Performance Consulting, at the Montréal office. Éloïse has been battling leukemia for two years, undergoing weekly chemotherapy. We are delighted to announce that her treatments are now completed and that her test results show she is in remission! She can therefore live a normal life as a young girl. We hope this will help distract her from the difficulties of the past two years.

We sincerely thank the members of the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton community who supported the team, either by sponsoring one of our cyclists or by participating in one of the many internal financing activities.
