On April 19 2014, a special fundraiser was held at the Rialto Theatre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada to raise money for the IDF Life for a Child Programme. The event was organised as part of a school project by Andria Carosielli, a young woman with type 1 diabetes, and Sandrine Lapointe. Guests included Katia Shannon (author of the documentary Sweet 16), who gave a speech on her work and experience with the Programme in Ecuador. The gala’s main attraction was a James Brown tribute show, where guests, friends and family danced the night away for a good cause.
The evening was a great success with over $8.000 raised to help children with diabetes in developing countries supported by Life for a Child. The Programme is very grateful to Andria and Sandrine for their support.
