March 13/14 19:44 pm - Garneau Performance Art 2014 Proceeds to Rwanda Cycling Team


Posted by Editoress on 03/13/14
 

Louis Garneau presents a new series of 12 paintings entitled Hope. All the proceeds from the sale of these paintings will be donated to Rwanda's National Cycling Team. The paintings of the Hope series are sold for $20,000 each, all in profit of the development of cycling in Rwanda.

Louis Garneau Sports has been a sponsor of Rwanda's team for over four years. Team Rwanda allows its athletes to benefit from professional-grade training and organization. Its cyclists can thus ride for themselves, for their country, as well as to raise awareness about the situation in Rwanda.

"For the rest of my life, I have decided to give all of the funds generated by the sale of my paintings to causes that I believe in. Team Rwanda is one of those," declares Louis Garneau. "I am filled with admiration for these young men who lived the atrocities of the genocide and who, refusing to be taken down, choose to keep living, opting to compete in one of the most demanding sports there is."

The exhibition will be accessible to the general public without reservation until May 1st, during opening hours at the Louis Garneau boutique at 40, des Grands-Lac, in St-Augustin-de-Desmaures
