About Une nuit dans la rue

To mark the organization’s 30th anniversary and pay tribute to its founder, Father Emmett Johns “Pops,” Dans la rue will present the 2nd edition of its overnight challenge event, Une nuit en la rue, on Thursday, October 4th, 2018 on Metcalfe St.

On this occasion, executive participants will take on the double challenge of raising funds and awareness in support of Dans la rue’s programs and services and sleeping one night outdoors in downtown Montreal.

Much more than a fundraiser, this event, presented by Sun Life Financial and Ivanhoé Cambridge, aims to educate the corporate community about the problems faced by the young people we serve. The commitment of nearly 50 participants at the 2017 inaugural edition of Une nuit dans la rue raised more than $130,000 in support of Dans la rue’s programs and services.
