Held on Friday May 5th at the Windsor Railway Station, The Sugar Ball is one of Montreal’s most anticipated young professional events. Currently on its 8th editions, the proceeds of the night go directly to benefit the museum’s Foundation in order to subsidize school visits and offer a reduced price to the Museum.

This program annually allows 10,000 elementary and secondary schoolchildren to discover the McCord Museum’s collections and learn more about their heritage: (stories, people and communities).
