Montréal Builders Club - May 30, 2016

Ever since it opened, the Museum has made a point of paying tribute to all the builders who have helped to make Montréal the metropolis we know today. The annual Builders Club evening brings together some of our city’s business leaders, both men and women, who are shaping modern-day Montréal and laying the foundations for the city of tomorrow. The benefit dinner is held every spring in the Museum’s archaeological crypt, a unique spot in the very heart of the remains of Montréal's birthplace.

You are cordially invited to the 21st edition of the Montréal Builders Club Benefit Event, which is being held on May 30 at Pointe-à-Callière, under the honorary presidency of Mr. Pierre Turcotte, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Alithya. 

You will be attending a refined reception filled with surprises, during which we will pay tribute to the most noble of beasts: the horse. The event will be in keeping with the spirit of Pointe-à-Callière’s new temporary exhibition, the world premiere presentation of Of Horses and Men – The Émile Hermès Collection, Paris. The exhibition features remarkable objects from the private collection of Émile Hermès, housed in his office at 24 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris.

The Montréal Builders Club is preparing an immersive experience that includes cocktails in the Montréal 360° Space—which offers splendid views of the city—, a tour of the exhibition, and a gastronomic meal served in the archaeological crypt—a unique space situated among the remains of the very birthplace of Montréal.

Reserve your places by completing this form now for this exceptional evening that is sure to surprise you.

Major Donors evening

Every year, in co-operation with a partner, the Pointe-à-Callière Foundation organizes a prestigious benefit banquet to salute its Major Donors. The exclusive event offers a small group of benefactors a chance to enjoy an extraordinary experience, to step behind the scenes and tour sites that are normally off limits to the public, or to be among the first to visit new Montréal attractions.
