$ 203 000 dollars were raised at the 10th Annual Black and White Dance party of the Thoracic Surgery Research Foundation of Montreal

On Saturday, 25th April, 2015, the Thoracic Surgery Research Foundation of Montreal celebrated its 10th anniversary at notoriously known Black and white annual dance party.

The event was held at Centre Le Madison in St. Leonard, where the party was launched for the first time in 2005. As always, the staff showered over 700 participants with their old-fashioned hospitality.
The Honorary President of the event, Mr. Eric La Flèche, President and Chief Executive Officer at METRO, gave a touching tribute to Dr. Pasquale Ferraro and the Thoracic Surgery Department and thanked the members of the Board for their dedication and philanthropy.

The Chairman of the Board of Directors, Dr. Pasquale Ferraro honoured not only the partners and exceptional sponsors of the Foundation but also the extraordinary team who acts as ambassadors of excellence toward the development of technological inroads in thoracic surgery.” Thanks to your unconditional support and your unwavering commitment, the Foundation has successfully achieved its objectives and continues, after 10 years, to provide better care, offer high-quality teaching and perform highly technological research.”

The Foundation proudly netted $203,000 from the memorable evening, which included raffle proceeds of $20,000, a record that can only be attributed to the generosity of our loyal patrons, who danced the night away to the wee hours of Sunday morning!
