By: Surmesur

Thanks to its annual fundraising campaign launched in 2011, Surmesur was recently proud to donate $50,000 to the CHU de Québec to help in the fight against prostate cancer.

Attending the cheque presentation were (pictured from left) Surmesur co-founder Vincent Thériault; Marie-Claude Paré, Director General of the Fondation du CHU de Québec, and Dr. Vincent Fradet, a urologist-oncologist at CHU de Québec.

Every November, Surmesur designers create a necktie, a bow tie, a pocket square and a woman’s scarf that are sold to raise funds for prostate cancer research.

The tie is sold for $35, taxes included. The bow tie retails for $30, the pocket square for $15 and the scarf for $45. All are available in Surmesur boutiques as well as online at

Now in its fifth year, the campaign has sold close to 700 ties and accessories, with profits used to help purchase equipment and fund research.
