Montreal had been abuzz for months as it prepared for its annual Masterpieces 4 MADA gala. The community rallied together to support this important cause. Many collected auction prizes, schools prepared beautiful art pieces and artists donated their artwork. Their hard work culminated in a beautiful event at the Windsor Ballrooms on May 19. The camaraderie, rich food and endless cocktails made it an event to remember. But, the most beautiful part of the evening was the gathering of Montreal’s finest, joined in unity, to fight hunger.

Famous comedians Orny Adams and Jim Breuer had the crowd in tears, demonstrating how we too can “Laugh Away the Tears.”
The Gala was led by the articulate Debra Arbec, head anchor at CBC News.

Thanks to the generous Montreal community, over $200 000 was raised to feed the needy through MADA’s cafeteria.

Looking forward to seeing you next year. Together, we can fight hunger!

| New Building

The MADA Community Centre has transformed itself from a grassroots organization to the central address for combating poverty in the Montreal Jewish community. Demand for MADA’s services continues to rise, every day!

We have now outgrown our current space at the Cote Des Neiges Plaza. In order to make way for a big box store at the mall, as of May 1st, our lease is up and we are moving to our new and permanent location at 6875 Decarie Blvd. Our staff, offices, social workers, kitchen and cafeteria have made the transition to our new building. The food bank will be relocated at a later date.

We are certain that the new MADA headquarters will allow us to better serve our clients and also facilitate new programs that could not be housed in our previous locale. We look forward to welcoming you to our new premises!
