M and SiriusXM team are honoured to support the Garage à Musique at the Dr Julien Foundation.
In partnership with SiriusXM, the Franco M benefit concert featuring Pierre Kwenders, Lary Kidd and Koriass, was a resounding success and showcased outstanding vocal while supporting raising for a great cause.
At M, we are delighted that the fundraising event sold out and raised $4,000 for the foundation. The funds raised will be used for the social development of more than 700 young people from underprivileged areas.We make it our mission to support this social pediatric centre and to encourage the music therapy offered to these young kids.
It was on June 20th, that the M team came to hand a $4,000 cheque to Dr. Julien. The latter warmly thanked M For Montréal for its philanthropic gesture and its real involvement in this cause.
Jean-Phillipe, Manager, Canadian Content Development and Industry Relations expresses his gratitude and thanks:
“SiriusXM is proud to have collaborated with M for Montreal to present this special event, in support of an initiative as important as the Dr. Julien Foundation’s Music Garage. He also mentions “The SiriusXM Special Concert has allowed us to support their social pediatric mission in a unique way. “
M for Montreal president, Sébastien Nasra, also had sincere and touching words to describe his year over year commitment to this project.
“I could hardly imagine an edition of M for Montreal without our special concert to the benefit of the “Garage à Musique de la Fondation du Doc. Julien” so much so, that its becoming a tradition. This gesture, however small it may be compared to the immense impact of the “Garage à Musique” as a privileged tool to support children in social pediatrics, is an opportunity for us to contribute to an important cause for which music itself is at the heart of a matter of the heart. Irresistible you say? Like these smiles of proud children able to express themselves, able to find themselves thanks to the musical magic that works… wholeheartedly! And since 2014, it is thanks to an incomparable partner, SIRIUS XM that we are able to ensure this initiative, we thank them warmly. Now set your sights on November 2018 and all ahead for the Garage à Musique! “[Sebastien Nasra]
As Sébastien Nasra put it so well, we really care about the cause and we want to get even more involved. For these reasons, a benefit show is already confirmed for the 13th edition.
Save the date: November 15th at club soda.
Stay tuned for the lineup reveal in the upcoming weeks!
