Avenir Lac-Mégantic Event

To raise even more money for the cause, Entourage Télévision taped the Avenir Lac-Mégantic event held on Tuesday, August 13, 2013 so it could air simultaneously on Sunday, August 25, 2013 from 8 pm to 10 pm on all four francophone stations: ICI Radio-Canada Télé, TVA, V and Télé-Québec. The audience was invited to make donations live—through the call centre or online—during the broadcast of the show.

Avenir Lac-Mégantic was a large-scale variety show featuring an impressive roster of comedy and musical acts. Jasmin Roy directed the show and Denis Bouchard served as artistic director. The audience had the chance to see Peter MacLeod, Gino Chouinard and Pénélope McQuade in the role of co-hosts with comedy acts by Louis-José Houde, Rachid Badouri, Marie-Lise Pilote, François Morency, Anthony Kavanagh, P-A Méthot, Mariana Mazza and Mike Ward, and musical performances by Garou, Isabelle Boulay, Cœur de pirate, Jean-Marc Couture, Marc Dupré, Jérôme Couture, Kaïn, Annie Villeneuve and Jonas & The Massive Attraction.

The show and its subsequent TV broadcast helped raise $790,377.06 for the Avenir Lac-Mégantic fund.
