MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 8, 2008) - On Sunday, May 4, over 4,000 shoppers joined the Farha Foundation's bi-annual event and came to the Palais des congres de Montreal to shop for a cause!

About the Farha Foundation

The Farha Foundation is Quebec's leading AIDS fundraising organization, committed to help men, women and children living with HIV and AIDS. The events organized by the Farha Foundation also serve to sensitize the population to the AIDS epidemic.

Since 1992, the Farha Foundation has distributed over $7.3 million to some 45 AIDS organizations throughout Quebec providing care and services (housing, medication, food, palliative care, counselling, homecare, etc.) as well as AIDS prevention and education programs. A volunteer advisory committee screens which organizations the Foundation funds, and then follows up to ensure the funds are being put to the best possible use.
