Spokesperson Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau
Next February 5th marks ANEB’s annual benefit gala at the Métropolis in Montreal.
Montreal, November 27th, 2013 – Anorexia and Bulimia Quebec (ANEB) is launching its seventh financial campaign under the theme “LE CRI DU CORPS”. On this occasion Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau wants to break the stigma surrounding eating disorders that continue. “I would like to say that I am deeply touched and happy to be an ambassador for this campaign that supports the noble efforts of ANEB. The truth is that eating disorders are a symbol of a sad reality. They are the symbols that reflect unhappiness, a fragile self-esteem and a mental imbalance afflicting more and more young Quebecers” Ms. Grégoire -Trudeau affirmed.
Eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia are increasingly known. There are other forms of the illness emerging such as binge eating disorder, orthorexia and bigorexia but remain in the shadows. “ANEB serves as springboard to educate, raise awareness and to help break the walls of suffering. It is essential to provide the necessary support to overcome the pain, torment and risks associated with their disease that is so often wrongly trivialized. Remember that when not treated, a person can die of complications related to the disease”, says Josée Champagne, executive director of ANEB.
As part of the fundraising campaign there will be a spectacular show. Under the musical direction of Pascal Mailloux the evening promises great entertainment by performing artists such as Cœur de pirate, Marjo, William Deslauriers, Judith Bérard, Étienne Cousineau, Dominique Hudson, Émilie Lévesque, Aurélia O'Leary, Brian Tyler, Steve Veilleux of the group Kaïn, Marie-Pier Perreault ainsi que Jean-François Beaupré to name a few! The special evening will culminate a fundraising campaign targeted to raise $ 175,000. This amount will ensure immediate cost-free assistance by specialists to people suffering from the illness as well as their families. Each donation collected, both corporate and private, allows ANEB to provide the tools required for a better quality of life for those who suffer from an eating disorder.
