Primus Business Services supports 2009 CHEO Telethon for fourteenth consecutive year

    TORONTO, May 29 /CNW/ - Primus Business Services, a leading national
full-service communications provider, is donating support and services valued
at more than $10,000 to this year's CHEO Telethon. The purpose of the CHEO
Foundation is to raise funds to help support the work of the Children's
Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Proceeds from the CHEO Telethon will help to fund
research, purchase equipment, train staff, assist families in crisis and make
improvements to the hospital.
    Primus has been donating web hosting services to the CHEO Telethon since
1995. For the seventh consecutive year, Primus will stream the live telethon
on CHEO's web site and process their online donations by managing the
e-commerce portion of the site. Six of Primus' employees will volunteer their
time at this year's telethon by manning the online streaming server and
assisting volunteers with processing donations.
    "We are pleased to continue our involvement in the CHEO Telethon by
providing IT services and are hopeful that our contribution will help to make
a difference for the families seeking medical help from the Children's
Hospital of Eastern Ontario," said Caterina Didio-Duggan, Director of
Marketing for Primus Business Services. "The dedicated Primus employees, who
donated their time and effort to this important cause, should be very proud."
    "Primus Business Services has been instrumental in helping the CHEO
Foundation maintain an online presence not only at Telethon time, but
throughout the year as well," said Len Hanes, Director of Communications for
the CHEO Foundation. "Their generous support helps us promote our events and
makes it easier for people to support the patients at CHEO via online
donations. Primus truly helps make a difference in the lives of the children
at CHEO."
