It’s that time of the year again! Time to party in style for an amazing cause: the Let’s Bond fundraiser ball happening this October 14th 2016! I am excited to join forces once again with this great Montreal collective. Raising funds for the Mental Illness and Douglas Foundations and mostly awareness on mental health issues are the mission of this beautiful evening. As young professionals and millennials, running on a fast-paced schedule and thriving on pressure can lead a lot of us to these issues. We all know that friend or family member that is suffering from depression, anxiety, anorexia or bulimia, just to name a few… Unfortunately, these issues are still very taboo! Some of us don’t even recognize them to be health disorders. And when we do, we have a hard time talking about the subject and don’t feel at ease asking questions about it. This has to stop! Mental health issues are as important to treat as any other illness because their effects are as debilitating and enormous on our lives.
This year will not only be glamorous, hip and filled with cool entertainment but will be held in a new and enchanting venue! Throughout the evening, you will have the chance to bid on awesome items via the interactive silent auction and participate in raising more funds for the cause. Now ladies, I have a little scoop! One of the items you will find at the silent auction is an exclusive piece of jewelry created for the event by MYEL Montreal designer Myriam Elie! The elegant and luxurious necklace is designed with nothing less than 14K white gold and diamonds, valued at 1300$! Who will be the highest bidder? Gentlemen, this would be a lovely gift for your special lady ;)
MYEL is not only graciously donating this pendant, but it’s also offering a 15% discount on every piece of jewelry bought between October 5th and October 14th 2016. All you have to do is bring a proof of your ticket purchase for this year’s Let’s Bond! Myriam Elie creates high quality jewels that are inspired by her travels and that suit every lady, from the minimalist to the edgy fashionista! You can find her various collections at the boutique on 1090 Laurier Street West in Montreal.
Looking forward to participating to this wonderful event and sharing its trendy fashion!
