Nearly 400 people participated in the 18th Canadian Red Cross annual fundraising event held on September 27th at the Grand Quay of the Port of Montreal, which raised $1,015,400. Benefitting the Canadian Red Cross Emergency Management fund, this amount will be used to prepare for the unexpected while assisting those impacted by disasters across the country.

Over the years, this annual Red Cross fundraiser has become a significant event on the Montreal scene.
