National Bank Launches a Partnership With Opéra de Montréal

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 
Montréal website 
(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.
