What’s New?: Champagne Evening Bubbles Over with Success

Congratulations to the marketing committee of the BNI Victoriaville Premier chapter, which held a highly memorable champagne evening on November 2. On the menu at this grand event: champagne, gourmet bites, advice from a sommelier, a silent auction—and 160 very satisfied guests!

The “5 à 7″ cocktail party had three main goals: first, to give the Victoriaville Premier chapter greater visibility; second, to raise funds for Mia Couture, a young girl suffering from septo-optic dysplasia, also known as De Morsier syndrome; and lastly, to raise money for the Victoriaville Tigres players’ scholarship fund and, at the same time, finance the rental of an arena box from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

“We successfully reached all our goals,” proudly stated chapter President Julie Raymond, who is also the co-owner of Azur Groupe Santé-Beauté in Victoriaville. “We had set our sights high for our members and their guests, and we received very nice, very positive responses. We owe a great debt to our marketing committee, and also to our chapter members, each of whom made a significant contribution to this very colourful event, either by selling tickets or through goods or services.”

The evening rapidly paid off. Several professionals have already shown an interest in joining BNI Victoriaville Premier, impressed by the group’s sense of cooperation and desire to advance.

Is there a similar evening on the agenda for next fall? ”Given the participants’ response, we will surely be putting on a new version of this extraordinary event in 2012,” said Mrs. Raymond confidently.
