Belœil, January 23, 2020 – Opération Enfant Soleil is proud to continue its association with Bonneville Homes for a sixth consecutive year to create the 2020 Maison Enfant Soleil signée Bonneville. Unveiled this morning, this unique model was specially designed for Opération Enfant Soleil and can be viewed starting in February at the Expo Habitat Québec and then in March at the Montreal National Home Show, as well as at Bonneville Homes from April to July 2020. The winner will receive a grand prize valued at $500 000 including a fully decorated and furnished house as well as funds to purchase land in the city of their choice or $325 000 in cash. All participants will also have the chance to win one of 33 secondary prizes in the form of gift cards from our valued partners.
This project was made possible by the generosity and support of our partners, including IKEA, the official decorator and furniture supplier, Lowe’s Canada, the official materials supplier, and TD, the primary provider of the funds for purchasing land. Tickets are $10 and will be available across our whole network in the month of April, including RE/MAX, Familiprix, Couche-Tard, RONA, Réno-Dépôt, Opto-Réseau and Mikes Restaurants. You can also buy tickets online now at www.maisonenfantsoleil.ca.
Opération Enfant Soleil spokesperson Alain Dumas took advantage of the occasion to present his collaborator, Enfant Soleil Jayden. Jayden suffered from intractable epilepsy caused by a brain tumour. It took twenty-two long hours for doctors to remove the mass. The rehabilitation has been long, but thanks to your donations, he has been able to benefit from specialized devices that have saved his life.
Mr. Dany Bonneville, Co-President of Bonneville Homes, is very proud to see the family business continue its philanthropic mission. He was thrilled to unveil the image of this beautiful home. To continue the tradition started by Bonneville Homes founder Mr. Paul-Émile Bonneville, who named new home models after his children and grandchildren, the 2020 Maison Enfant Soleil signée Bonneville will be named Jayden in honour of the project’s Enfant Soleil ambassador.
Last year, more than 2,1 million dollars was raised by draw ticket sales. Since its first edition, Maison Enfant Soleil draws have raised more than 26 million dollars. The draw will take place on July 16 live on Salut Bonjour on the TVA network.
