Dear Mr. Bensoussan,
On behalf of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) Foundation, thank you for your Bronze sponsorship of $5,000 support of our first Gala of the Three Stars.
More than 350 guests were treated to an exceptional evening at The Windsor Ballrooms as part of this inaugural fundraising event. Under the leadership of Executive Chair Pierrette Wong, the Gala of the Three Stars raised $200,000, and was held in conjunction with Montreal’s Chinese Community. It was attended by many dignitaries, including the General of China in Quebec, Pen Jingtao, MNA and Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Health and Social Services, Marie Montpetit, and Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grace borough mayor Russell Copeman.
The evening also served as an opportunity to honour the achievements of two prominent MUHC-Chinese physicians: Dr. John Chen, retina specialist, and Dr. Dominique Shum-Tim, cardiothoracic surgeon. The MUHC Foundation presented these two exceptional physicians with its MUHC Foundation Award of Excellence, awarded to individuals who have pushed the boundaries of innovation and had a positive impact on the MUHC locally and internationally.
The proceeds from the Gala of the Three Stars will support the purchase of specialized ophthalmology equipment, the creation of an international cardiology fellowship, and the translation of patient education materials into Chinese at the MUHC.
It is thanks to the generosity of donors like you that the MUHC Foundation is able to help our hospital remain at the forefront of patient care, research, and teaching. Our Committee is already hard at work planning next year’s edition, and we hope to count on your support once again in 2018.

My son just got married at Le Windsor, it's an amazing beautiful place, everything was perfect and the food was delicious. l'll recommend Le Windsor to everybody for a wedding or any other type of party, and the staff was unbelievable super great. All our guests could not stop talking about Le Windsor and the wedding party, how beautiful it was and how much fun they were having. The band was also the best I ever seen,everybody was dancing with every song they sang. God bless Le Windsor.
We just wanted to thank you again for everything, you're the reason our wedding day turned out so beautifully, we can't get over it!!
Thanks so much!
Your whole team was amazing! Thank you for all your help and Dan's generosity who took into consideration that we are a non-profit organization. The food was exquisite and the venue is spectacular! We received a lot of positive feedback from our guests. We will definitely be collaborating in future events.
This is truly the place for weddings... not just a reception room but a true opulent ballroom / princess experience. The lights, the columns, the chandeliers, the sweet table... our day seemed like a dream. Thanks to Noémie and her excellent team for everything!

Now that I have recovered from the epic-ness of our big day, I feel the need to recognize both you and the ballrooms as you made our wedding exactly what I have always dreamed it would be.
The guests were so well tended to and all the small details were handled to a "t". You made my life so easy even if I didn't have all the answers. Everyone has been gushing about all the elements you so diligently orchestrated! All the small crisis were handled and imperceptible, even to me. You stepped in right before the wedding and the transition was seamless. We had a wedding we can be proud of, and beautiful memories to last a lifetime.
My husband and I want to sincerely thank you for everything!
I would just like to thank you for last night and give you some feedback from our guests as well, who were all very, very impressed and simply loved the venue for our fundraising gala! Everything looked absolutely beautiful and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Again thank you very much for making the venue look so special and everything run so smoothly on the night!

Thank you to you and your team for all of your help and hard work that helped to make our event a great success! Everyone from Molson Coors was very happy with how things turned out, and that couldn’t have happened without your help. Please pass on my thanks to the entire team at Le Windsor as they were all extremely hard working and accommodating to our requests.
It was a pleasure working with you and hopefully we can do it again soon!

The Windsor ballrooms provided the perfect setting for my romantic, regal wedding reception. Every one of our guests were awed by the grandeur and majesty of the architecture of the ballrooms. Your venue helped make my wedding day a dream come true.

We would like to thank you and your team at Le Windsor for helping make our recent events, the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) VIV Cocktail Reception and the CAR Annual Dinner & Awards Gala, a true success.
Amongst the many positive aspects of our experience, we must highlight the exception service we received from all of the staff members, who were all extremely friendly and demonstrated tremendous professionalism.
Overall, Le Windsor surpassed our expectations and we were extremely satisfied with the quality of the catering, quality of service, the amazing décor, the professional service, and the location of the venue.

Our tribute gala in honour of our retiring Head of School was truly a night to remember. Not only is Le Windsor a beautiful venue, it was also a pleasure working with their professional and supportive staff. Every detail - from set up to lighting to the delicious meal - was attended to with care. We are grateful.

I just wanted to thank you once again for helping us out on our wedding day! Everything was so beautiful, I was really happy, so was Sia. Our family and friends had a great time also.
Thank you again !!! I really feel like you went above and beyond for us.

Dear Danny, Kim and all the staff at Le Windsor,
We just wanted to send a thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such an amazing wedding.
Everyone working at Le Windsor was so incredibly professional and helpful. The decor and food were amazing. We couldn't have pictured a more beautiful setting .
We had so many compliments.
We had the most amazing night.
Heidi and JF
On behalf of Fednav we’d like to thank you for taking such good care of us on Friday night. We really felt we were well taken care of. The comments from the guests have been outstanding which reinforces the success of our event. Thank you!

Thank you so much for everything you did to help make our wedding the most special night ever. The Windsor was such a beautiful space and I feel so lucky to have had our wedding there. The majority of the people at our wedding were from out of town and they could not believe how beautiful the Windsor was!
Thank you so very much.
We were absolutely blown away by what a great experience it was to work with Le Windsor and Amy. Amy unfailingly went above and beyond to help us plan our wedding and coordinate our day. She was so professional, kind, relaxed and very efficient! She always went out of her way to help us, whether by making recommendations, giving us her personal cell number and encouraging us to use this, or finding me a dry cleaner last minute who could steam my veil (when I could not find one myself after several attempts!).
By the end of our wedding, and after all her help leading up to this event, Amy felt more like a personal friend taking on Maid of Honour duties rather than a venue coordinator simply doing their job.
We would like to thank everyone at Le Windsor, and especially Amy, for helping us make our wedding everything we hoped it would be.
Meredith and Gerry
Thank you to the entire team at Le Windsor for helping to make our spring fundraiser a huge success! Your professionalism and attention to detail exceeded our expectations. The venue was beautiful, the food was excellent and our guests had a fabulous time. A special thank you to your event coordinator who made planning this event a pleasure!
