THE CANADIENS IN THE COMMUNITY
COPS AGAINST CANCER
For a fourth consecutive year, the Canadiens teamed up with the Canadian Cancer Society for the Annual Cops Against Cancer shave-a-thon. The event took place on January 16, 2006 during the game between the Habs and the Dallas Stars. More than 200 participants got their heads shaved in exchange for a donation, allowing the Canadian Cancer Society to raise close to $62,000.
A TRIBUTE TO THE CHILDREN OF
To conclude the activities that took place during January, the Canadiens dedicated their last home game of the month to the children of Leucan. The team invited children and parents who were guests of Bell Centre private suite holders to a pre-game reception. For the occasion, Natalie Choquette sang both national anthems. She was accompanied on the ice by two children who have benefited from Leucan. Between periods, the guests in José Théodore’s suite enjoyed Zamboni rides. In all, more than 40 children spent an unforgettable evening at the Bell Centre on January 31, 2006.
