MONTREAL – Yesterday, the Formula 1 Grand Prix du Canada celebrated its “Grand Evening” event which included an impressive list of Canadian Olympians, Formula 1 drivers and team representatives, and Quebec artists. In total, the evening generated close to $750,000 for the Fondation de l’Hôpital du Sacré-Coeur and the Canadian Olympic Foundation, in support of sport research, innovation and the retention of world-class coaching and equipment for Canadian high-performance athletes.
