The 19th annual fundraiser dinner, held in aid of Integration Jeunesse du Quebec (IJQ), took place on May 24th 2018. This popular Canadian initiative, which is designed to train and mentor young, local job seekers, has resulted in upskilling and job opportunities for many of its participants.
Hosted by Mario Comtois, Chairman of the Board of Directors of IJQ, and with over 400 guests attending on the night, the event was enjoyed by all who were in attendance. Also on the night, Denis Talbot, who has been involved with IJQ for many years, officially announced that he was to become the spokesperson for the organisation.
Mathieu Lachance, Functionality QA Service Line Director at Keywords Studios, sponsored the silent auction at this year’s event. The evening was a great success! Thanks to its sponsors and all those participated, $120,770 was raised on the night.
All funds raised will go directly to IJQ to ensure the continued success of the organisation.
