A Dazzling Carnival Night to Celebrate Leucan’s 40th Anniversary

On November 1, there was a full house at The Leucan Experience, co-presented by RBC Royal Bank and National Bank, Private Banking 1859. This year, $461 250 was raised by our 540 guests in support of cancer-stricken children and their families.

To celebrate Leucan’s 40 years of existence in 2018, our annual major benefit event was A Night at the Fair at TOHU. In honour of the evening’s theme, guests were invited to take part in authentic carnival games and enjoy a festive, gastronomic meal with creative dishes prepared by Chef Laurent Godbout from Chez l’Épicier restaurant—our guest chef for a third consecutive year.

Behind every childhood cancer diagnosis, the entire team of Leucan gets involved to help families survive this upheaval of their normal daily lives. Tonight, the business community did not hesitate to rally together in an outstanding wave of solidarity in support of the families of Leucan.

This event would not have been such a tremendous success without the precious support of our honorary co-chairs, Mrs. Nadine Renaud-Tinker, President, Quebec Headquarters, RBC Royal Bank, and Mr. Eric Bujold, President, National Bank, Private Banking 1859. Leucan would also like to acknowledge the generous contribution of Mrs. Danièle Henkel, speaker and author, President and Founder of Daniele Henkel Inc., the Honorary Patron of this event. Leucan extends its thanks to the President of our Ambassadors Committee, Mr. Luc Bisaillon (RBC Royal Bank), and to the event’s Ambassadors: Mr. Germain Bureau (RBC Royal Bank); Mr. Pierre Cantin (CIC Capital); Mr. Mario Caron (National Bank, Private Banking 1859); Mrs. Sandra Silva Da Costa (Arbonne); Mme Brigitte Dagnault (Sun Life Financial); Mr. Michel K. Landry (Deloitte); Mr. Philippe Langelier (Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton); Mr. Joe Lo Dico (Richter); Mr. Pascal Proulx (Leucan Board of Trustees); and Mrs. Isabelle Sicard (Leucan Board of Trustees).
