Radio-Canada Acadie continues sponsorship of Acadian Entrepreneurs’ Gala for a 10th time

CHARLOTTETOWN – Feb. 23, 2023 – Radio-Canada Acadie is marking its 10th anniversary as a first-level sponsor of the Entrepreneurs’ Gala hosted by the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI (CCAFLIPE). Instead of providing monetary support, the national radio station lends the voice of its host and producer Denis Duchesne from the program Le Réveil ÎPÉ to the CCAFLIPE to record audio biographies of the 16 finalists and winners of the Gala awards. This will be the 10th time that Gala attendees will hear Duchesne’s voice as they watch images of each finalist’s life on the big screen. In exchange for this fantastic sponsorship this year, Radio-Canada Acadie will have the honour of presenting the 2022 Young Millionaires Award to a participant of this youth entrepreneurial program who has been successful in their business this past summer. The finalists are Isabelle Gallant of Bijoux Isabelle of Cape Egmont, Victor Corney of Great Stick of Charlottetown and Caleb Lombardo and Leo Consejo Cadena of Seaside Treasures of Souris. CCAFLIPE considers Radio-Canada Acadie and Duchesne (on the right in the photo) to be pillars of the Gala’s traditions. The coordinator of the entrepreneurial recognition evening, Raymond J. Arsenault, recently visited the production studio to discuss the sponsorship with Duchesne. The Gala, which will take place on March 11 at 5:30 p.m. at the Village musical acadien in Abram-Village, will begin with a delicious three-course meal. CCAFLIPE will then present awards in five regular categories and induct five long-time business people into its Acadian and Francophone Business Hall of Fame of PEI. Tickets are on sale through March 3 at the Wellington Rural Action Center, 902-854-3439 and
