THE CANADIENS IN THE COMMUNITY
A Dedicated Family
The Montreal Canadiens Hockey Club’s commitment to its community is a value that is embraced by every member of this great family. The Gillett family, the Canadiens’ management, players, their wives and girlfriends, the coaching and training staff, the team’s ambassadors, the team’s stars of yesteryear, as well as all employees – all of these people are committed to making a difference in the life of their fellow man.
Pierre Boivin and Dickie Moore visited brokers and businesspeople who participated in the Desjardins Securities Commissions Day.
This year, Steve Bégin and his family were spokespersons for the team’s Blood Donor Clinic. Steve and his wife Amélie spent an entire afternoon greeting blood donors and talking with fans who came to the Bell Centre for the event.
They’re dedicated, they’re enthusiastic, and they’re diehard Habs fans! Team owner George N. Gillett and his wife Rose love to meet with Canadiens fans of all ages. Rose Gillett and daughter-in-law Lauren were members of the Mount Kilimandjaro expedition – a trek that helped raise $455,000 for the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation in February 2005.
