A FOUNDATION FOR CHILDREN

Many sweet Returns

As the countdown for the Montreal Canadiens’ 100th anniversary gets in full swing, the hockey club is honouring the greatest players in team history by retiring their jerseys. As part of this initiative, the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation donates $25,000 behalf of the honoured player to a Quebec organization that serves needy or underprivileged children.

During the 2005-06 season, the players whose jerseys were retired and their families chose to support the following organizations:

Yvan COURNOYER

Dickie MOORE

The Bernard GEOFFRION Family

The Montreal Shriners Hospital For Children — An orthopedic pediatric hospital that provides specialized care for children.

Leucan ($12 500) — A non-profit organization whose mission is to promote greater well-being and healing among children with cancer and to provide support for their families.

La Maison du Phare — The first palliative care centre established in Quebec, the Maison du Phare will accommodate 250 children and their families annually for undetermined periods of time.

Le Camp Carowanis ($12 500) — A special camp for diabetic children that fosters outdoor fun, lots of sports and help in dealing with diabetes.
