The Assistant General Manager and Chief Instructor of the Mira Foundation, Nicolas St-Pierre, received the cheque with much gratitude. "Uni-Select has supported Mira Foundation through its golf tournament for six years now. Their support enables the Foundation to continue developing its dog assistance program for children with PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder), among other things."

Uni-Select, a major distributor of replacement parts and paint products for motor vehicles in North America, has attracted over 160 golfers at The Vallée du Richelieu Golf Club Monday, July 15, 2013. This event, which allows Uni-Select’s management to thank its members, customers and business partners, also serves as an opportunity to support organizations working within the community.

"Uni-Select has been supporting the Foundation for some years in both Canada and the United States. It is important for Uni-Select to support organizations making a real positive impact in people’s lives." said Denis Mathieu, Executive Vice President, Corporate Services and CFO of Uni-Select and Vice President of the Board of the Mira Foundation.

The Mira Foundation offers, among other services, the opportunity for families of children with Autism spectrum disorder to benefit from the services of an assistance dog. The implementation of this program follows several years of extensive research of these dogs within families.
