We felt so lucky to witness the pride showcased by the kids, their teachers and families at the gala. It is vital for a society to underline and reward school perseverance as well as to push its kids to reach higher, and Opération Bonne Mine is a remarkable tool to do so.

Je m’en suis donc souvenu au moment de rédiger mon testament, et j’ai cru bon de leur léguer une partie de mon argent. Ainsi, j’ai l’assurance que celui-ci servira à faire du bien non seulement à mes proches mais aussi à la société en général. Car n’en doutons pas un instant, la pauvreté des uns affecte aussi les autres. Merci à la Société de Saint-Vincent de Paul de Montréal et ne lâchez surtout pas!

« I had the opportunity to be present at last night’s scholarships gala. What a wonderful evening! The teachers’ testimonials were so touching – and how about those scholarship winners! Thank you for believing in our kids and cheering them all the way. Thanks to all the donators and volunteers who made this evening such a grand affair. My daughter Stacy is so proud of her achievement and joins me in thanking all of you. Hats off to all your winning team! »

Stacy received a $500 scholarship which she we will use to buy a laptop computer for her schoolwork.
