Updated: Tuesday December 9th 2014
Dan Bigras and many other renowned celebrities will be performing for the cause of eating disorders.
Montreal, November 24, 2014 – Anorexia and bulimia Quebec’s charity event will take place on Wednesday February 4th, 2015. This colorful event will be held at the Metropolis to celebrate the end of the organization’s 2014-2015 fundraising campaign.
The event will begin at 6:30 PM with a cocktail reception during which Pascal Mailloux, the music director of the evening, will play songs from his album Rain, with his musicians. The show will follow at 8:00 PM, bringing together the voices of many committed artists. Dan Bigras, Marco Calliari, Breen Leboeuf (from Offenbach), Ingrid St-Pierre, Sally Folk, Sandra Christin, Marie-Pier Gamache, and Marie-Ève Fournier, only to name a few, will lend their voices to the cause.
Clodine Desrochers, this year's spokesperson of the fundraising campaign, will be the master of ceremonies. She speaks from her heart by inviting the public to join them in the fight against eating disorders:
Many of us find it hard to understand why some people become obsessed with food to the point of being sick... I have myself long been embarrassed to say that I struggled with this disease, as if it were a shameful thing... But as ANEB says, eating disorders are well beyond the food... Helping ANEB means contributing to raise awareness among adults and young people alike on the importance of a healthy relationship with your body and the key factor in fighting any eating disorder: self esteem. We must not forget that supporting ANEB is, above all, sending a message of hope: You can make it through.
This year's fundraising campaign goal is $200,000. Each donation received, either corporate or private, allows ANEB to offer people who suffer from an eating disorder a better quality of life. By participating, all of us will make this evening a success. The fundraising event is crucial to maintain ANEB's activities. It is worth pointing out that ANEB, through its provincial vocation, raises awareness upon issues related to eating disorders throughout the province of Québec.

BeMe is a virtual space created by ANEB in association with Woozworld where teens of 8 to 14 years old will find tools to help them reinforce their self-esteem and develop their critical thinking regarding the messages of beauty sent by the media! In addition of live confidential and secure interaction with other teens through an avatar called a Woozen, they will benefit, from time to time, of the presence of an ANEB facilitator to discuss nutrition, self-esteem, body image, bullying and many more subjects.
The teenagers will meet Be and Me, the BeMe Lounge’s dynamic duo (animated by an ANEB facilitator), that look forward to help the Woozens to realize that they are unique and beautiful in their own unique way! The goal of Be and Me: helping tweens and teens to realize how special they are and appreciate it.
