With René Angélil serving as Honorary President, the Patron’s Tournament to raise funds for the Céline Dion Foundation was a resounding success yesterday at the Casino de Montréal.  A total of 100 blackjack players participated in the event, which ultimately raised $311,000 for the Foundation.

“This fundraising initiative is extremely important,” underlined Mr. Angélil, “particularly during this holiday season when so very many people are in need.”  Céline Dion showed her appreciation as only she can by joining her brothers and sisters in a special performance to thank the tournament participants and their guests. For his part, the General Manager of the Casino de Montréal, Yves Devin, reiterated his delight in working with the Dion- Angélil duo to raise funds for such a worthy cause.
