The Cocktail for a Better Tomorrow: A Memorable Evening in Support of the Lise Watier Foundation

The second edition of The Cocktail for a Better Tomorrow organized by National Bank Financial_Team Guy Côté was held in Toronto on June 4. This benefit event in support of the Lise Watier Foundation was co-chaired by two influential figures: Katie Tabesh, Managing Director, Institutional Equity Sales, at Financial Markets at National Bank, and Katerine Rocheleau, Development and Communications at National Bank Financial Team Guy Côté. Their leadership and dedication greatly contributed to the success of this charitable evening, which raised a net sum of $160,000.

This annual event aims to raise essential funds to support initiatives of the Lise Watier Foundation, dedicated to improving the lives of women in vulnerable situations. The foundation offers the Let’s Start Up Program to women who wish to pursue entrepreneurial projects, post-secondary studies, or seek more rewarding employment.

The 200 attendees had the opportunity to meet female entrepreneurs and graduates of our Toronto program. The warm and friendly atmosphere enabled guests to network while supporting a noble cause.

The fund-raising event raised funds to support the Lise Watier Foundation’s Let’s Start Up Program in Toronto, to help more women achieve financial independence.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of this event!

The Lise Watier Foundation offers the Let’s Start Up Journey in Montreal, Quebec City, the Laurentians, Montérégie, Sherbrooke and Toronto. More than 300 women a year are committed to taking action through the Let’s Start Up Journey. 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.
