The great GALA

Fred's very first GALA

On Thursday, October 3, 2024, Fred invites the business community, entrepreneurs, and industries to participate in the 1st edition of Fred’s Grand GALA, at the Balcon cabaret at 463 Sainte-Catherine, Montreal, QC H3B 1B1.

This first-ever annual GALA is sure to be a unique networking opportunity, but more importantly, a major fundraiser with a common goal: the well-being of children and teenagers with type 1 diabetes.


This Gala is more than just an event; it’s a unique opportunity to celebrate five decades of dedication and support for diabetic children. The funds raised enable the Foundation to maintain privileged contact with children, teenagers, and their families, as well as contribute to the maintenance of the only specialized bilingual camp for diabetic children in Quebec, camp Carowanis. This camp aims to help youngsters gain independence and break their isolation, offering a safe and educational environment to learn to manage their condition while having fun.

Participating in the Gala offers guests the chance to become part of an influential network of professionals and industry leaders, raising their profile and strengthening their social commitment. In addition, their direct contribution supports vital programs for young diabetics, demonstrating a commitment to community and corporate social responsibility. Participants also benefit from community and media recognition, and the satisfaction of knowing they are playing a crucial role in improving the quality of life of diabetic children.
Join us for a memorable evening of elegance, generosity and solidarity, and help make a significant difference in the lives of young diabetics and their families.
