This year, it is $1972,76 that we have gathered thanks to the customers’ donations, the employees’ participation as well as the hotel’s involvement. As it is a cause that touches us particularly, so we have decided to round the amount to $2000!

November is now over, but the foundation is still active and still needs money. Did you know that you could donate all over the year? The Days Inn Berthierville Hotel offers you a secured platform to make donations.

Help us to reach our target and contribute to financing research concerning prostate and testicular cancers as well as men’s mental health all over the world. You can visit the foundation’s website, movember.ca, for more details.

The Movember is back at Days Inn Berthierville!

 

The Days Inn Berthierville hotel is proud to announce the return of the Movember movement in the hotel. Indeed, once again this year, the hotel decided to renew its engagement with the Movember Foundation to support and to promote men’s health: “We are absolutely glad to get involved in the Movember for a second year to promote men’s health and to help financing research in this field. It is important for us to advertise the cause, and mainly to participate to it”, says Audrey Hatin, vice-director.

 

All November, the Days Inn Berthierville will donate to the Movember Foundation $1 per booked night in the month, in addition to giving 5% of all revenues associated to bar sales and meeting rooms rentals. Boxes will also be put at the front desk to collect donations, and employees will have the possibility to wear jeans while working, providing that they donate $2 to the foundation each time! Anike Bélanger, General Manager, wants her employees as well as clients to actively participate in the cause.

 

 

As for the clients, they will get a 10% discount on their room rates, only by wearing the mustache. Fake mustaches will be given at the front desk in order to give the opportunity to everyone to take part in the cause and get the discount. The hotel incites the clients to donate a part of their reduction to the foundation. 

“The thing is, for every cause that we support, we all have someone around us that could suffer from that kind of situation. For example, the Movember gives us the possibility to help the men in our life in our own way, whether it is a father, a brother, an uncle or a friend. Every small gesture is bigger than we think” declares Anike Bélanger, General Manager. 

 

The Cause

The Movember Foundation contributes to financing research concerning prostate and testicular cancers as well as men’s mental health all over the world. You can visit the foundation’s website, movember.ca, for more details.

 

Regarding the Belanger Family

The Belanger family, owner of the Days Inn Berthierville for more than 20 years, has been involved in the hotel and restaurant industries for more than five generations. For them, a social implication is a priority for a business. The Belanger family wants to contribute as much as they can to the society, and that initiative with the Movember Foundation is part of all the causes they support.
