HEROES NIGHT - 8th Edition - June 3, 2010
On Thursday, June 3rd, 2010, the Farha Fondation paid homage to some of Quebec’s greatest heroes who through their passion and tireless efforts have helped to support the fight against HIV/AIDS. The Farha Foundation honoured a total of eight Quebecers and the broader community in an evening dedicated to their accomplishments. Nearly 300 guests gathered in celebration of HEROES NIGHT.
