Former Dallas Stars GM and Head Coach Bob Gainey, who currently serves as Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Montreal Canadiens, got together with his children Anna, Stephen and Colleen on Wednesday to announce the creation of the Gainey Foundation at a press conference at the Bell Centre in Montreal.
Established in honor of Cathy and Laura Gainey, the Gainey Foundation will support community-based charitable organizations, especially those committed to causes that reflect Laura and Cathy's interests in education, arts and the environment.
"Over the past few months, we have received overwhelming support from across Canada, the United States and beyond," said Mr. Gainey. "We know that many other families went through significant tragedies and struggles, and that many do not have the support and network that we are fortunate to benefit from. We hope that with the resources at our disposal, we can help."
