It will be immediately followed by a tribute to the Special Olympics Québec athletes who have distinguished themselves in 2014. Six recognition awards will be presented. The recognition evening will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and will feature a cocktail reception, speeches and a multimedia presentation.

During the evening, three prestigious awards will be presented in connection with the Partners’ Hall of Fame of Special Olympics Québec in recognition of the involvement and outstanding work of some of its most valued members.

In the Sport Celebrity category, the award will be presented to speed skater and Olympic medalist Nathalie Lambert. And in the Police Department Director and Sport Director categories, the awards will be presented respectively to Marc Parent, director of the Police Department of the City of Montreal, and to Pierre Boivin, former president and chief executive officer of the Club de hockey Canadien, the Bell Centre and evenko and current president and chief executive officer of Claridge Inc.
