On November 2 2019, more than 1,000 guests gathered to show their support for the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts 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 $1,6 million in net proceeds. The Ball highlighted the exemplary philanthropy of Stephan Crétier and Stéphany Maillery, guests of honour at the soirée. The event featured the unveilling of the new Stephan Crétier and Stéphany Maillery Wing for the Arts of One World. Inspired by various cultures from around the world artistic direction of the Ball was provided by Melissa Thompson of Cirque du Soleil’s creative intelligence team. She was supported by scenographer Anne-Séguin Poirier.

The MMFA Foundation would like to thank the approximately 100 volunteers who worked to organize the Ball, as well as the many goods and services partners who helped to significantly reduce production costs, allowing to raise as munch money as possible for the Museum.

The 60th MMFA Ball will be held on November 14, 2020
