Fete de quartier Saint-Bruno on August 20

Funds raised to benefit Société Alzheimer Laval


Laval executive-committee vice-president David De Cotis, who is city councillor for the district of Saint-Bruno, is inviting everyone to come out and attend the second annual Fete de quartier Saint-Bruno for the benefit of the Société Alzheimer de Laval.

Star Wars screening

The event, being held in conjunction with the 21st anniversary of the Alzheimer society, will be taking place at Lausanne Park on Aug. 20. That evening, the film Star Wars: Le réveil de la force will be screened outdoors at 8 pm. Free popcorn will be served.

“I am happy to be involved with the Fête because it will be an occasion to get together and have fun for neighbours, while also expressing support towards the families from Laval facing the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease,” said De Cotis.

To benefit Société Alzheimer

Société Alzheimer Laval executive-director Lise Lalande said the event will be an opportunity for the society to spread the word about their mission. “We offer a number of services, most notably consultations, respite for families and support groups,” she said. “The funds we raise during the event will allow us to continue our work and we are grateful for this.”

Mercedes-Benz Laval will be the principal sponsor of this family event. “I believe it is important for businesses to become involved in the community and this is a good example,” said the dealership’s owner and vice-president Louise Leblanc.
