Bal Neo Tokyo

Between Tradition and Modernity, an Unforgettable Philanthropic Evening 

The countdown is on for one of the most eagerly awaited events of the year: the Annual Ball of the Lise Watier Foundation, to be held on October 17 at Windsor Station. Co-chaired by two eminent figures from the business world, Benoit Lacoste Bienvenue of KPMG and Roger T. Duguay of Boyden Montreal, this event promises a moment of generosity and solidarity. 

Under the theme of Neo Tokyo, guests will be experiencing an evening in the hidden alleyways of Tokyo, where neon lights illuminate the night, blending tradition and modernity. Beyond the sparkle of this celebration, the Ball Neo Tokyo also has a significant philanthropic dimension. In fact, all funds raised during this benefit event will support the essential initiatives of the Lise Watier Foundation, dedicated to propelling the financial independence of local women. 

Benoit Lacoste Bienvenue, Managing Partner at KPMG, emphasizes the crucial importance of women’s economic fulfillment: “Women’s economic fulfillment is the pillar of equality. By investing in women’s financial independence, we are laying the foundations for a future where equity and prosperity are accessible to all. Let’s commit to supporting and nurturing this economic freedom, for it is the foundation of a humane, balanced and flourishing society.” 

For his part, Roger T. Duguay, Managing Partner of Boyden Montreal, expresses his commitment to the mission of the Lise Watier Foundation: “The Foundation’s mission speaks volumes to me. To develop the potential and self-confidence of every woman by providing her with the means to realize her full potential. In my role at Boyden, I help candidates present the best and most authentic version of themselves every day, while optimizing the person they are. 

The Lise Watier Foundation’s Neo Tokyo Ball promises to be much more than just a festive celebration: it’s an opportunity to make a difference, while celebrating the beauty of commitment and generosity.
