On April 20, Petit Lapin was part of a silent auction at the Cocktail Dînatoire at Maison Birks organized by the AQAA (Association Québecoise des allergies ailmentaires) in support of those with food allergies. We would like to thank the AQAA and Jérôme Ferrer for putting together such an amazing event for the second consecutive year!
My favourite moment of the evening was when the kids sang Personne n’est allergique au bonheur, a song written by Jean Robitaille. The song made its debut at last year’s AAQA benefit. Each time I hear this song, it is as emotional as the next. The song delivers a special message, which is that you can take control of your food allergies and still embrace life and be happy. There are ways to overcome this obstacle if we work together. My son, Ethan, is an example of this. He was not given a choice regarding his food allergies and food restrictions and still is a happy kid despite this. Witnessing my son and other kids going through the same struggle reminds me of why I do what I do. This is why I opened Pâtisserie Petit Lapin: to continue spreading love, hope and happiness to all!
Their performance made me so emotional that I couldn’t help but fight back tears! The song’s lyrics and melody really stuck with me… It is on repeat in my mind! I invite you all to listen to the song in the link below. I hope it will charm you as well!
