Montréal’s Foie de Vivre Gala Soirée 2018

A Fundraiser in Support of Liver Research and Education

Liver disease is often seen as an adult problem but in reality, thousands of children in Quebec, and the rest of Canada – from newborns to teens – suffer from various forms of life-threatening liver diseases. Our urgent challenge is to transform the future of these children, to offer them a realistic hope for a long and happy life.

Join us on Saturday, November 17, for the 2nd annual Montreal LIVERight Gala Soirée. This fabulous fundraising “Marionnette Dinner Theatre” in Montreal is in support of children and youth affected by liver disease.

Enjoy a Marionette Dinner Theatre at the historic Rialto in Montreal! An event you don’t want to miss.

Join us on Saturday, November 17th for a magical evening featuring: Marionette performances, Live Jazz, Art Auction, and Tapas Dinner. Doors Open at 6:00pm

Featuring a Marionette Dinner Theatre Performance!

Our unique Marionette Dinner Theatre event includes performances by contemporary Quebec artist Julie Desrosiers and her feature stage performance: Les Bois Dormants.

Les Bois Dormants (Sleeping Antlers) is a visual and musical performance inspired by the world of fairy tales. It tells the story of a child faced with obstacles who makes an antler forest lying dormant inside him.

2017 Foie de Vivre Gala Soirée recap.

In 2017, the Foie de Vivre Gala Soirée in Montréal took place at the Circus School of Cirque Éloize. It was a magical experience which included circus performers, live classical music, an art vernissage, and a costume corner & photo booth. A playful, creative design transported guests back to the magic of childhood, featuring Natalie Choquette as emcee extraordinaire!

Thanks to the generous support from our volunteers, attendees, special guests, sponsors, and donors, we are thrilled to announce that the 2017 LIVERight Gala was a great success across the country. This national event raised over $1.2 million dollars in support of liver research and education! We are happy to be one step closer to a world without liver disease. Thank you to everyone who teamed up to help make the 2017 LIVERight Gala a huge success!success!
