"Bal des Lumières will set a new standard for mental health fundraising in Montréal and Québec," said George Cope, President and CEO of BCE and Bell, and Chair of the event. "I'm very pleased to be joined by some of Québec's most distinguished business leaders in building on the progress of the Bell Let's Talk initiative and the fight against the stigma of mental illness."

Joining Mr. Cope as co-chairs of Bal des Lumières are Serge Godin, Founder and Executive Chairman of the Board, CGI; Geoff Molson, Owner, President and Chief Executive Officer, Club de hockey Canadien, Bell Centre & evenko; and Louis Vachon, President and CEO, National Bank. These leaders of Québec industry and culture have joined to shine a spotlight on mental health and raise funds for three of Montréal's most important mental health organizations.

"The last two years have seen major progress in highlighting mental health while breaking the stigma of mental illness," said Mr. Godin. "Collectively we are committing to making the next leap in converting awareness of mental illness - which after all affects 1 in 5 of us - into much needed funding for these three leading organizations in Québec mental health."
