 Laurentian Bank and Un-Wined for a Cause Present $159,000 to the  Sainte-Justine Hospital Foundation  THE DONATION WILL ALLOW FOR THE CREATION OF THE FIRST DEPIATRIC VESTIBULAR  CLINIC IN QUÉBEC  MONTREAL, June 2, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank and numerous of its  commercial clients and partners decided to join forces in a fundraising effort  that succeeded in collecting a total of $159,000. This sum was presented at  the fifth edition of the Un-Wined for a Cause event held yesterday in support  of the Sainte-Justine Hospital Foundation and the Hospital's Ear, Nose and  Throat (ENT) Department.  A number of the Bank's clients and partners formed a common front to raise  funds that will allow for the creation of the first pediatric vestibular  clinic in Québec. "This clinic will help children suffering from vertigo,  dizzy spells and balance problems caused by a vestibular system, or inner ear,  disorder," underlined Dr. Annie Lapointe, ENT surgeon at Sainte-Justine  Hospital. "No hospital in the province currently offers services to screen for  such problems in children, which are very often only diagnosed in later  adulthood."  In attendance at the event were Tony Migliara, Senior Vice-President of Real  Estate at Laurentian Bank and Honorary President of the evening, Mr. John  Farato, Founder of Un-Wined for a Cause, and Stéfanie Pelletier, the Bank's  Vice-President of Finance and Treasurer of the event, as well as a good number  of other employees. Everyone contributed to the success of this enchanting  evening, which will make a real difference in the lives of children suffering  from this disorder. The profits generated by a golf tournament to be held by  the Bank's Business Services sector this coming September will also go towards  this cause.
