Montreal, 30 June 2008 -
National Bank Financial Group is pleased to announce that the 17th edition of its charity golf tournament raised $30,000. This amount will be shared by two organizations in the Quebec City region: the Fondation de l’autisme de Québec and the Commission scolaire de la Capitale for its project to build a schoolyard park at Les Prés-Verts/Saint-Bernard school.
More than 250 golfers played in the tournament that took place on June 2 at the Royal Quebec Golf Club. “We are proud of how successful the tournament was this year,” said Réjean Lévesque, Executive Vice-President – Personal and Commercial Banking, National Bank Financial Group, and honorary co-chairman of the event. “Since 1992, this event has allowed the Financial Group to donate more than $400,000 to several non-profit organizations in the greater Quebec City region,” he added.
In 2007, through corporate donations, sponsorships, in-branch fundraising activities and various benefit events, National Bank Financial Group gave more than $20 million to hundreds of Canadian education, health care, cultural and community organizations.
