A FOUNDATION FOR CHILDREN
Desjardins Securities is also behind the presentation of celebrity hockey games in Quebec City and in Pierrefonds, where former Canadiens greats play fund-raising matches. The games are huge hits, as they attract nostalgic hockey fans and help raise money for the Foundation and local community groups.
Mr. Jean Béliveau, Marc-André Coallier, Alain Lauzière and Vincent Hogue launched the MINI NEXT along with Tania 4 years old, Amber 4 years old, Céleste 2 years old, Mathieu 2 years old and Hubert 2 years old.
Last spring, Desjardins Securities, MINI Canada and the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation teamed up with the Quebec Society For Disabled Children to raise funds for the October 19, 2006 drawing of a new MINI NEXT, featuring the colours of the Montreal Canadiens. The car also displays the signatures of all Habs players from the 2005-06 season, as well as the coaching staff. Talk about an authentic work of art on wheels!
