MONTREAL, June 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Industrial Alliance Insurance and
Financial Services Inc. is pleased to be partnering with the benefit concert
for the Club des petits déjeuners as major donor of the event. The first
edition of the benefit concert will take place on August 10 as the pre-opening
of the Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu International de montgolfières.
"This new partnership with the Club des petits déjeuners is quite natural
for Industrial Alliance as it reaffirms two of our fundamental values:
education and family," stated Yvon Charest, President and Chief Executive
Officer of Industrial Alliance. "We hope that this new initiative will allow
the organization to expand its services in several Quebec schools."
Industrial Alliance has been supporting the Club des petits déjeuners for
the last few years. In 2005, the Company partnered with the organization by
sponsoring Saint-Roch elementary school in the Quebec City region. Industrial
Alliance and its subsidiaries maintain several other commitments with
children's aid organizations, such as the Easter Seal Society, Make-a-Wish
Canada and the Children's Wish Foundation.
