The Montreal Special Needs Family Organization (MSNF) had a very successful “Pure Hearts Gala” on May 4th. The event would not have happened if not for the following wonderful people:  Pamela Abbruzzo, Diana Pettigrosso,  Melissa Piscuneri, Neil Janna, Derrick Levasseur, Fusion Photographer (Santino), Jean-François Besner, Eric Bellamy, Ariana Ianniciello. These very special people gave their time, energy and themselves to help make the Gala so successful.

We were able to add $2000 to MSNF which will be used for therapy for the children we are helping.

We want to also thank our wonderful sponsors for their generous donations of money and gifts. Thank you to those who went on our website and made some very generous donations as well.

MSNF and the children thank you from the bottom of our hearts

Thank you Carlo D'Ambrosio, Adriano Volpe, Felice Evangelista, Xavier Degire and Matteo Recine for choosing MSNF for

your fundraiser project this semester.

We were humbled when you called to ask if you could do this fundraiser for us. MSNF cannot believe how hard you both

worked for our charity.

Your professionalism shined and we realized that not only can you do this project so well but that your humbleness,

spirit and kindness came out in amazing degrees. You chose us for the project but in the end you became so inspired by

what MSNF does for the community and the children. you have contributed so much to these families by your hard work

and dedication. The funds you raised will allow us to take on two more children and continue with the therapy for the

three we are providing therapy for right now. These children have benefited so much by their particular therapies. 
Also a huge Thank you to all of our sponsors for their generous support.
