MONTREAL, July 11, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is proud to announce that its two annual golf tournaments raised a total of $71,000 in aid of three non-profit organizations — the Christmas in Spring Foundation, the Maison Mathieu-Froment-Savoie, and the Soupière de l'amitié de Gatineau. The tournaments were held in the Outaouais region and Montréal respectively.
"We are very pleased with the success of the tournaments once again this year," underlined Daniel Desjardins, Laurentian Bank's Senior Vice-President of SME-Québec, "with a good number of clients, business contacts and employees heeding the call to enjoy a day of golf while contributing to causes that are close to our heart. This kind of event is perfectly aligned with our organization's commitment to supporting organizations within the communities in which it operates."
Sharing the Bank's $71,000 contribution are the following:
- the Christmas in Spring Foundation, which helps sick and handicapped children and their families by offering them direct support to meet their urgent care and treatment needs, as well as to cover other everyday expenses; thanks to the Foundation's support, these children and their families can more freely focus on healing.
- the Maison Mathieu-Froment-Savoie, which supports the terminally ill and their families, thus enabling them to live their final days with as much serenity as possible.
- the Soupière de l'amitié de Gatineau, which fights poverty and impoverishment in all its forms.
