Learning about a profession while contributing to good causes
What better way to help than to contribute to a good cause? Giving whole-heartedly and dedicating one's time can make a huge difference in the life of others less fortunate. This must be the belief of students attending LaSalle College's International School of Hotel Management and Tourism. Low and behold, each year these students take part in charity events in the best way they know how: by lending their skills. Congratulations to these students who are preparing for their future profession with brio!
Here are a few charity events our students took part in:
The 24th edition of the Fondation de la Mode de Montreal's benefit gala took place on May 6th, 2013 at the Olympic Park with guests of honor, Chantal Durivage and Jean-François Daviau, Co-presidents of Groupe Sensation Mode.
A one-of-a-kind fundraising event
Every year in May, the Fondation de la mode de Montréal hosts a benefit evening with over 1300 guests. The evening consists of a variety of events, including the awarding of students’ scholarships by a jury, a homage to a guest of honour for their contributions to the Québec fashion industry and the presentation of the LaSalle College International School of Fashion, Arts and Design's annual spectacular fashion show - produced entirely by graduating students who put together the set design, music, lighting and choreography for an evening to remember!
The Fondation's objectives:
- To grant higher learning study bursaries to young designers
- To support research and development within the industry
- To encourage teacher-lecturer exchanges
- To facilitate student mobility by way of internships abroad
- To bring forth major conferences and industry symposiums
The Fondation de la mode de Montréal is a nonprofit organization, founded in 1990, which provides higher education scholarships promoting university studies in fashion in Canada or abroad.
