The Montreal Canadiens, in collaboration with the Laval Rocket, evenko and L'Équipe Spectra, have launched the Rise Together initiative, a fundraiser to support frontline healthcare workers and those impacted by COVID-19.
The Rise Together initiative features both sweepstakes in which to participate and auctions on which to bid. Proceeds from the sweepstakes and auctions will go to Centraide of Montreal's COVID-19 Emergency Fund, which has a main goal of responding to emergency food needs. Proceeds will also be used to provide meals, prepared by chefs and restaurant staff at the Bell Centre, to frontline healthcare workers around Montreal. More information about Centraide's COVID-19 Emergency Fund can be found here: https://www.centraide-mtl.org/en/covid-19/emergency-fund/.
We thank LJT Avocats and Me Pierre Savoie for their collaboration in organizing this fundraiser.
