10e The mayor’s ball of Fondation Jeunes en Tête in Fairmont Le Château Frontenac took the form of a major reunion on Friday evening, two years after an epidemic in which the mental health of young people was sometimes tested.
Under the honorary leadership of Louis Vuitton, President of the National Bank from 2017 to 2021, with the financial support of Mayor Bruno Mercant, this first large community evening after the mandatory break was “sold out”, with 500 guests coming to support the cause.
For this comeback, the event surpassed itself by raising a record amount of $ 605,000.
“There are many needs among young people in the aftermath of this epidemic. The mental health issue is important. If we want to support them, our community groups that work miracles need resources,” he explained.
All profits will allow Fondation Jeunes en Tête to support organizations that help youth in the capital-National and East Quebec. The aim is to provide a free mental health program in high schools in Quebec.
The presence of merchants in the ballroom reminded everyone that imprisonment was often painful for a section of the population. “There were fewer smiles and less money. There was less opportunity to help. There are always young people who do not know where they are going to sleep, and they need us,” said evening host Stephen Pelvans.

“People continued to be generous, but it’s certainly not an event like this this evening,” said Eric Buzzold, chairman of the trust’s board of directors.
The organization wanted on Friday to pay tribute to the former mayor of Quebec who is so important to the youth. Through video conferencing, guests were able to see Regis Labyrinth shed tears of joy at sending the torch to the next.
He said it was a pleasure to continue. Despite his bow tie, Mr. LaBeouf made Border laugh, noting that he was very comfortable, barefoot elsewhere and away from the camera.
To date, Mayor Paul and Foundation Jeans N Ted have been able to help 22,000 teens by investing more than $ 3.4 million in various projects.
In 2020, the virtual ball raised $ 225,000.
