$145 000 raised for Young Musicians of the World

Recently, the annual benefit cocktails and concerts in support of Young Musicians of the World (YMW) were held in Montreal and Quebec City. Co-chairing the Montreal events were Mr. Jacques Tardif from La Capitale Financial Group and Mr. Jean-Claude Vaillancourt of Optima Global Health, while the Quebec City events were chaired by Mr. François Laflamme of Optima Global Health. These events brought together almost 2000 people who helped raise $145 000. This amount is a significant portion of the funds needed to operate the organization’s five schools.

Many renowned artists and students from the various schools took turns playing colourful pieces for the enjoyment of all in attendance.

Optima Global Health is proud to contribute to this innovative human approach that contributes to the development of young people from needy villages and neighbourhoods. Since the company began, assistance and innovation have driven our organization and we believe it is crucial to support a group that shares our values. Young Musicians of the World confirms to us that social intervention can take the form of singing and playing musical instruments.

Furthermore, on June 10, 2013, Optima Global Health and La Capitale will present the third edition of the Young Musicians of the World annual golf classic.
