Montréal, June 14, 2006 – The 7th annual ABC Awards Ball for The Children’s of The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation was held on May 25. Under the theme “A Toast to Life,” the evening, hosted by Ms. Marianna Simeone, was attended by over 500 dinner guests at the Centre Mont-Royal on Mansfield Street in Montréal.
