Thanks to the funds raised during these campaigns and fundraising activities, hundreds of homeless and vulnerable women are welcomed year-round in a safe and non-judgmental environment, helping them regain their independence and self-esteem.
Organized by the Emerging Leaders Circle*, Le Chaînon Sportif is a fundraising activity initiated in 2019 that aims to raise awareness of the cause of women in difficulty among the Greater Montréal area's business community. This unifying event, powered by a participatory virtual fundraising platform, invites people to get moving during a private workout performed by a professional fitness center, partner of the event.
*Created in 2017 by Le Chaînon Foundation, the Emerging Leaders Circle brings together young professionals who wish to use their expertise and network to raise awareness of Le Chaînon's mission in the Montréal community.
Le Bal du Chaînon is the largest fundraising event of Le Chaînon Foundation. Since its first edition in 2014, this event has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. Thanks to the collaboration of a committed honorary committee, it allows us to reach a network of business people and citizens concerned by Le Chaînon's mission.
Until 2019, this annual event took the form of a gala dinner gathering close to 500 guests in an exceptional location, and presenting musical and humorous performances by artists from the Quebec scene.
In 2020, with the arrival of COVID-19, the event was completely reinvented to meet public health regulations. The traditional gala was transformed into the "Ball en mou", a virtual event where guests could participate in the fundraising celebrations from the comfort of their own homes. Highly talented artists shared the virtual stage, offering the public and the women of Le Chaînon an entertaining and emotional evening.
Due to its success, the "Ball en mou" has been renewed for a second edition in 2021.
RELUXE was born in 2015 thanks to the initiative of Chantal Durivage, Ody Giroux and Isabelle Éthier, women who are committed to the environment. Focused on eco-responsible consumption, the RELUXE event raises funds for the Le Chaînon Foundation by offering, to fashion lovers, second hand designer clothes and accessories at unbeatable prices.
RELUXE was first held in a luxurious downtown hotel, over two days. In 2020 and 2021, the event was transformed into a month-long "Espace RELUXE" at Le Chaînon store, offering a great outreach to the Montréal community. The effervescence around RELUXE and the visibility offered by the store in 2021 allowed us to reach a record level of funds raised, $56,000.
