More than 1,000 guests gathered to show their support for the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) last Saturday at HARMONIES, the Museum Ball organized by the MMFA Foundation. Thanks to the valuable contribution of co-chairs Marc Parent, President and CEO of CAE, and Jean Raby, CEO of Natixis Investment Managers, the fundraising soirée raised a record of more than $1.6 million in net proceeds!
Presented by RBC Royal Bank, the Ball highlighted the exemplary philanthropy of Stephan Crétier and Stéphany Maillery, guests of honour at the soirée. The event featured the unveiling of the new Stephan Crétier and Stéphany Maillery Wing for the Arts of One World, a major ensemble of works from the MMFA collection presenting world cultures from an intercultural and transhistorical perspective. The evening was also an opportunity to mark the 100th anniversary of Tourisme Montréal.
