Media Advisory - BMO Bank of Montreal Celebrates Grand Opening of New Toronto Branch with Donation to Sunnybrook Hospital

    TORONTO, June 21 /CNW/ - On Thursday, June 21, 2007 BMO Bank of Montreal
will celebrate the official grand opening of its new Bay and Breadalbane
branch, in the College Park complex, by making a $5,000 donation to the new
maternity ward at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto.
    BMO's donation will support the construction of a new home for Sunnybrook
Health Sciences Centre's Perinatal & Gynaecology program which cares for women
and babies. The program is currently located at 76 Grenville Street (Women's
College Hospital) and will move in 2010 to a new state-of-the-art facility on
Sunnybrook's Bayview Avenue campus to assist with the growing volume of
patients. The move and expansion of Sunnybrook's Perinatal & Gynaecology
program will provide the best possible medical environment for women, newborns
and premature infants, when it matters most.
    "We wanted to give back to the community with a donation to one of our
local esteemed hospitals and show our appreciation and support for the
organizations that mean so much to the health and well-being of our vibrant
community," said Maria Guyenot, Branch Manager, BMO Bank of Montreal.
    BMO invites customers and neighbours to come by and join the celebration
where there will be a complementary BBQ and a draw to win one of many great
prizes. BMO the Bear will also be on hand giving out piggy banks.
    "This grand opening event is a great opportunity to welcome customers to
our new location which features extended banking hours, knowledgeable banking
professionals, and a convenient location in the downtown core," added Ms.
