Benjo's Xmas Breakfast
Year after year, we do not minimize the needs that are still great and reiterate our commitment to youth organizations and causes that we have at heart. In order to provide a sweet and magical holiday season for families in great need, our annual fundraiser takes place at the Fairmont Château Frontenac in November, in the form of a traditional Benjo Christmas Breakfast; filled with magic.
2022 was the return of this great event in person and the amount raised is just as great! It is with great pride and joy that we were able to raise $138,000 which will be redistributed to organizations that help children and families in need in the surrounding areas. Special thanks to our main partners: GM Development, Groupe Ocean and Desjardins
May children's hearts shine now and forever !
The creation of the Benjo Philanthropic Fund was inspired by a strong desire to touch the lives of young people in a magical way.
Our dream is to reignite the fire in children's hearts so that they can continue to shine forever. With this reason for being in mind, the Foundation's contribution serves as a magic wand for youth development in many areas of life.
Whether it's sports, arts, culture, directly in schools or through various social involvement, the Benjo Philanthropic Fund aspires to emphasize the spirit of initiative, the desire for achievement and above all, the ability to exceed personal goals, which we believe all young people are capable of.

The Nicolas-Viel award
The Benjo Foundation established the Nicolas-Viel Award in honour of a young man who greatly inspired those who were close to him before he was taken from them by illness.
Nicolas felt the first symptoms of cancer when he was 12 years old. A diagnosis of osteosarcoma at the tibia, special care in the United States, struggle, remission and amputation followed. Nicolas was 15 when he lost his battle on December 24, 2013, after years of fighting to try to keep smiling despite everything.
The Nicolas-Viel Award is aims to highlight acts, initiatives, achievements, involvement or performances that are worthy of a honourable mention and achieved by a youth or youth group under 18 years old.
Whether it's a creative invention, a courageous gesture, an act of generosity or a particular commitment, the Nicolas-Viel Award recognizes young people who stand out.
