Media/Photo/Interview Advisory - BMO Bank of Montreal Donates $5,000 to Georgetown Hospital Foundation

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

    GEORGETOWN, ON, Feb. 22 /CNW/ - Georgetown Hospital Foundation will
receive $5,000 from BMO Bank of Montreal to fund the expansion of the
obstetrics unit, enabling mothers in the region to receive expert medical care
and stay close to family and support when they receive medical treatment.
    The donation is being made as part of the bank's celebration of the grand
re-opening of BMO's newly renovated Georgetown branch on Saturday February 23,
2008. The new branch has acquired an additional 900 square feet for an
investment of $1.36 million which has allowed the branch to reconfigure the
space to provide more offices with greater privacy. Customers will be pleased
with a nicely appointed customer waiting area, a new greeter station and
extended banking hours.
    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 re-opening. BMO invites customers and fans to come by and meet Darryl at
an autograph signing, enjoy complementary cake and refreshments, and enter a
draw to win one of many great prizes.
