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.
