Urban Sugar Shack
In April 2019, the Laurent Duvernay-Tardif Foundation, in partnership with the Fondation de l’athlète d’excellence du Québec, brought together more than 500 guests at a sugar-shack-inspired dinner to announce the creation of its scholarship program. The student athletes targeted by this program are 12 to 14 years old, have excellent marks, are emerging talents in a particular sport, and are passionate about a specific art discipline. The event raised more than $325,000 jointly. This money will be fed into the LDT Foundation scholarship program, and the first scholarships will be handed out in spring 2020.
