Media/Photo/Interview Advisory - BMO Bank of Montreal Donates $35,000 to Milton District Hospital

    Former Toronto Maple Leaf Darryl Sittler and Local Dignitaries to
    Participate in Milton Branch Grand Opening Celebration

    MILTON, ON, March 29 /CNW/ - Milton District Hospital is $35,000 closer
to its goal of purchasing a Computed Tomography (CT) scanner that will enable
Milton and area patients to remain in town, close to family and support, when
they receive medical treatment.
    On Saturday, BMO Bank of Montreal will celebrate the grand opening of its
new Maple Avenue branch by announcing a $35,000 pledge to the Milton District
Hospital Foundation's Our Family, Our Community, Our Hospital Campaign. The
campaign was established to raise money for a much needed CT scanner for the
hospital so patients do not have to leave town for medical tests.
    As the official bank of the Toronto Maple Leafs, BMO Bank of Montreal is
thrilled that Darryl Sittler will be on hand to help celebrate the branch's
grand opening. BMO invites customers and fans to come by and meet Darryl at an
autograph signing, enjoy burgers and hot dogs at a complementary BBQ, and
enter a draw to win one of many great prizes.
