Laurentian Bank Contributes $71,000 to Three Organizations in the Wake of Its 
Annual Golf Tournaments 
MONTREAL, July 11, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is proud to announce 
that its two annual golf tournaments raised a total of $71,000 in aid of three 
non-profit organizations — the Christmas in Spring Foundation, the Maison 
Mathieu-Froment-Savoie, and the Soupière de l'amitié de Gatineau. The 
tournaments were held in the Outaouais region and Montréal respectively. 
"We are very pleased with the success of the tournaments once again this 
year," underlined Daniel Desjardins, Laurentian Bank's Senior Vice-President 
of SME-Québec, "with a good number of clients, business contacts and 
employees heeding the call to enjoy a day of golf while contributing to causes 
that are close to our heart. This kind of event is perfectly aligned with our 
organization's commitment to supporting organizations within the communities 
in which it operates." 
Sharing the Bank's $71,000 contribution are the following: 

    --  the Christmas in Spring Foundation, which helps sick and
        handicapped children and their families by offering them direct
        support to meet their urgent care and treatment needs, as well
        as to cover other everyday expenses; thanks to the Foundation's
        support, these children and their families can more freely
        focus on healing.
    --  the Maison Mathieu-Froment-Savoie, which supports the
        terminally ill and their families, thus enabling them to live
        their final days with as much serenity as possible.
    --  the Soupière de l'amitié de Gatineau, which fights poverty and
        impoverishment in all its forms.
