$150,000 in profits, an unforgettable event! 

On April 13, the second edition of the Lise Watier Foundation Cocktail was held. In a festive atmosphere and under the unique decor of Arsenal Art Contemporain, more than 550 guests attended the event. Thanks to their immense generosity, we raised a net amount of $150,000

During the evening, our honorary president, Ms. Isabelle Langlois, SVP Performance, Management l Business Intelligence at Rodeo FX, delivered an inspiring message. 

For a second consecutive year, we took the opportunity to announce the recipients of two grants to support women in the Let’s Start Up program in their professional projects. Funded by the Rocheleau-Côté Family, the Education Grant was awarded to Juliett Castro, a student in the D.E.S.S. in Spirituality and Health at the Université de Montréal. The Entrepreneurship Grant, financed by BCF, was awarded to Nancy Olivier, founder of the company La Fromagerie Saint-Sauveur. 

In conclusion, we would like to thank Mrs. Isabelle Langlois for their honorary presidency as well as the precious partners and collaborators of the evening. We would also like to thank the committee of ambassadors and guests who, by their presence, made the evening a success. All proceeds will be used to finance the Let’s Start Up program of the Lise Watier Foundation, to help local women develop a professional project that will allow them to be financially independent. 


Graduate of the Let’s Start Up Program

The Lise Watier Foundation offers the Let’s Start Up program in Montreal, Toronto, Quebec City, the Laurentians and Montérégie. More than 200 women a year are committed to taking action through the Let’s Start Up program. They graduate with a better understanding of their strengths and skills, as well as the knowledge and tools to implement their professional project. Women thus begin a new journey towards financial independence through entrepreneurship, a return to school or a more fulfilling job.
