5th Annual M4M Gala and Art Auction
Come join us for a night of comedy at our 5th annual Masterpieces 4 MADA Gala and Art Auction!
This year’s 5 annual Masterpieces 4 MADA (M4M) event promises to be exceptional, with a stellar line-up of renowned comedians. Since 2010, Masterpieces 4 MADA has raised over half a million dollars in support of the MADA Community Center.
The inspiring evening will begin with an auction of one-of-a-kind masterpieces donated by artists and students. Guests will then be treated to a hilarious comedic line-up featuring local actor and comedian Joey Elias as Master of Ceremonies, Just for Laughs regulars David Acer and Phil Shuchat and headliner Wendy Liebman, a regular guest on late night television with her own half-hour specials for HBO and Comedy Central.
The goal of the event is to raise funds to provide food for those less fortunate and to create awareness about poverty. “So far, our cafeterias serve 298,183 meals a year to our patrons, but the referrals continue and we are obliged to accommodate more people – many more!” says Rabbi Chaim Shlomo Cohen, MADA Director.
M4M will be held at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, June 10th, 2014 at the Corona Theatre, 2490 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest. There will be an open bar and delicious food as well as valet parking.
M4M gathers and involves our peers, elders and students of all ages as they contribute their talents and works of art in an effort to raise money to support MADA’s quest to feed the needy in the community. Students at participating Montreal schools, such as Jewish People and Peretz School, Hebrew Foundation School, and Elizabeth Ballantyne have designed unique art reflecting this year’s theme “Let’s Turn Tears Into Laughter”.
