Winners of the 2014 Maison Enfant Soleil draw

July 10, 2014 (Québec) – The 22nd Maison Enfant Soleil draw took place live on TVA’s “Salut, Bonjour!” this morning. Mr. Jean St-Martin of Sherbrooke (ticket #204 185) has won the magnificent home located at 15 Du Moulin Street in the Lanaudière region town of Sainte-Béatrix. Ms. Iulia Adamoiu of Laval (ticket #192 929) won $25,000; Ms. Fabienne Blais and Mr. Jocelyn Gagné of Montmagny (ticket #254 189) won $10,000.

Valued at $550,000, the house was built thanks to the support and generosity of our partners: Construction SAVCO, official construction company; the municipality of Sainte-Béatrix; Sears Canada, furniture supplier and official decorator; BMR, main supplier of construction materials; and TD.

Such a major initiative would never see the light of day without the support of companies in the provincial ticket sales network: RE/MAX, Sears, Familiprix, BMR and TD. Their involvement, coupled with people’s participation, contributes to adapting hospital care to the needs of sick children in Quebec.

This year, close to $1,7 million were collected from selling tickets. Maison Enfant Soleil draws have raised nearly $17 million since the first edition.

The cause is very real to our team, and we know the importance of the incredible work done in children’s hospitals all across Quebec. We care deeply about the health of sick children, which is why our involvement this year as the official construction company of the 2014 Maison Enfant Soleil is so important.

With the help of several of our usual partners, we imagined, designed and decorated the 2014 Maison Enfant Soleil with our personal touch and a contemporary style. Built on a wooden lot as part of an energy-efficient building project with an environmental charter, this spacious home features a garage and offers unrivalled comfort right in the middle of nature. We proudly invite you to take a tour this spring!

Once again this year, Sears Canada wants to recognize the courage and perseverance of sick children across Quebec and their families.

The 2014 Maison Enfant Soleil, which you will be able to visit starting in April, will be a contemporary house with many rooms featuring a warm, family-friendly decor. This year, you can expect a lot of colours, chiefly inspired by the natural environment around the house.

Throughout the years, sick children and their families have always been consulted to make sure the Maison Enfant Soleil’s decor and design reflect who they are.

As part of its growing commitment to protecting the environment, Sears Canada used mainly raw or recycled natural materials for this year’s furniture and decor.

As the proud ENERGY STAR Retailer of the Year for 2003, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, Sears Canada is committed to making the Maison Enfant Soleil as energy efficient as possible and will provide the future owner with energy-saving ENERGY STAR qualified appliances.
