    ST. JOHN'S, Feb. 29 /CNW/ - The Daffodil Place Campaign has received a
generous gift of $30,000 from Lamb's Palm Breeze Amber Rum, Newfoundland's #1
selling spirit brand.
    Alan Doyle of Great Big Sea and member of the Daffodil Place Campaign

great commitments from corporate entities and we are very pleased to have
Corby Distilleries Limited show their support to the people of Newfoundland
and Labrador by making such a generous gift on behalf of Lamb's Palm Breeze
Amber Rum".
    Rick Hollihan of Corby Distilleries Limited, stated that "The 2007
Daffodil fundraising campaign in liquor stores surpassed our expectations, we
are thrilled that consumers showed their support and we are able to give back
