MONTREAL, March 13, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - National Bank is proud to announce a
three-year financial partnership with the Young Associates Committee and the
Atelier lyrique of Opéra de Montréal. The Bank kicks off its partnership
this week by acting as the official presenter of the National Bank Night at
the Opera. This spectacular benefit event will take place on Friday, March 15
at 7:30 p.m., amid the sets of the renowned opera Dead Man Walking.
"Promoting the development of young people is a priority for National Bank. It
was therefore only natural for us to support the Young Associates and the
Atelier lyrique de l'Opéra de Montréal, which both do their part to
introducing young people to the world of arts and culture," said Lise-Anne
Amyot, Vice-President - Brand Image and Data Governance at National Bank.
The goal of the event is to raise funds to support Opéra de Montréal, and
introduce young professionals from the Montreal area to the world of opera or
give them an opportunity to rediscover the art form in a completely different
kind of setting.
A few tickets, at a cost of $125, are still available on the Opéra de
(http://www.operademontreal.com/en/support/young-associates). National Bank
clients can obtain 20% off the regular price of tickets.
Every year, through its donations and sponsorships program and the initiatives
of its employees, National Bank supports hundreds of organizations across
Canada. It is particularly committed to supporting health, education, arts and
culture, and community outreach, with the goal of generating positive benefits
for communities. To find out more, visit commitment.nationalbank.ca.
