Janine-Sutto Theatre Evening

Our biggest fundraiser of the year, this event has been in place since 1983. It is held at the end of January every year at Théâtre Jean Duceppe at Place des Arts. The evening event consists of a cocktail buffet before the play and a sparkling wine and sweets party after the play.

In 1983, Mesdames Lee Garant, Danielle Cousineau and Denise Tonelli made up the first organizing committee of the Soirée Théatre Janine-Sutto on behalf of the Association de Montréal pour les déficients mentaux (renamed the Montreal Association for the Intellectually Handicapped, or the MAIH, in 1987). Thanks to their hard work, more than 650 tickets were sold, and proceeds of over $7,000 were raised. The wine and cheese party (former sparkling wine and sweets) was a success thanks in part to the involvement of two members of the Board of Directors – Messieurs Pierre Desmarais and Maurice Bleau – and of a number of public figures in the business community.

In 1986, encouraged by the success of its French-language theatre event, the MAIH organized an English-language theater evening at the Centaur Theatre.

Through the efforts of all the volunteers and salespeople who have helped organize this event since it first began, nearly one million dollars of proceeds have been raised thanks to the involvement of the Montreal business community. Without the commitment of its honorary chairs, the Janine-Sutto Theatre Evening would never have met with such success:

EnCirquez-vous

The EnCirquez-vous Gala! is MAIH’s second biggest fund-raising event of the year after the Janine-Sutto Theatre Evening. Introduced in 2013, its aim is to immerse guests in the world of the circus for an entire evening, beginning with special acts presented during the cocktail buffet right before the end-of-year show of the graduating class of the École Nationale de Cirque. We truly hope that guests attending the event enjoy themselves as they join together to help raise funds for the MAIH and its many different projects. This two-part evening provides a networking space in the context of a warm cocktail buffet and the opportunity to take part in an amazing circus show. Each year, the event makes it possible to fund a different MAIH project, with direct benefit to our members.
