The media are invited to attend this event:

DATE/TIME:

The co-chairs of Centraide's 2015 campaign—Andrew Molson, Chairman of RES PUBLICA Consulting Group, and Eric R. La Flèche, President and Chief Executive Officer of METRO—as well as Centraide President and Executive Director Lili-Anna Pereša, will participate in the announcement.

Spinning to help so many move forward towards a better future
The announcement of the campaign result will be followed, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., by the Spin-O-Don for Centraide, during which teams of cyclists representing companies and community agencies will spin for three hours to raise funds. They will be encouraged by several well-known personalities, including Josée Lavigueur and professional racing cyclist Lex Albrecht.

This Spin-O-Don will reflect all the energy deployed by the 22,000 volunteers who, since last September 29, have been actively collecting donations in the 1,400 companies and organizations that participate in Centraide's campaign.
