    Local wish of a home theatre system is granted to a local young woman

    MONTREAL, Aug. 1 /CNW/ - Best Buy and the Children's Wish Foundation
recently granted 16 year old Alexandra Coude her long time desired wish of a
home theatre system at a recent ceremony at the local St. Bruno store. As a
big 'movie buff', Alexandra has always dreamed of owning this kind of
entertainment system.
    "It has been an incredible experience for our store to be a part of
bringing this wish to such a deserving individual and family," said Justin
Melanson, General Manager, Best Buy. "Giving back to our local communities is
an important part of our culture and values and we are thrilled to have been
able to make this positive impact on Alexandra's life."
    "The Children's Wish Foundation is very happy to have partnered with Best
Buy to fulfill this wish for Alexandra", said Lise Bibaud, a Children's Wish
Foundation star volunteer. "Thanks to their generosity, we were able to
proudly continue to grant all eligible wishes that we receive."
