Mondou has announced it has raised $100,000 for the Centre hospitalier universitaire vétérinaire (CHUV). This amount was revealed during a cheque presentation ceremony which took place last week after a cocktail and sample sale event, with proceeds going to the campaign. The money raised from the very first edition of the Mondou Mondon campaign for the CHUV, which took place from December 1, 2022, to January 16, 2023, will be used to purchase state-of-the-art equipment for the students enrolled in Université de Montréal’s Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.
Members of the public were invited to donate in the 81 Mondou stores across Quebec or online at Mondou.
