Media Advisory/Photo Op - Holiday Sales at LCBO Raise $20,000 For Ontario Association of Food Banks



    Corby Distilleries Limited Donates a Portion of Holiday Gift Pack Sales
    to Help Fight Hunger

    TORONTO, March 3 /CNW/ - A campaign to raise money for the Ontario
Association of Food Banks (OAFB) through the sale of holiday gift packs at the
LCBO has generated $20,000 and will support the organization's efforts to
distribute food across Ontario. One dollar from the sale of every Corby
Distilleries Limited holiday gift packs was donated to the OAFB until the
maximum target of $20,000 was reached.
    "The sad fact is that one in five food banks in Ontario do not have
enough food to meet the needs of those they serve," says Adam Spence,
Executive Director of the OAFB. "Corby's commitment during this past holiday
season will help us immensely to transport food to communities across the
province from Niagara Falls to Thunder Bay."
    Join us at Corby's head office for the official cheque presentation.
