Montreal – The Montreal Alouettes proudly announced that the team has collected more than $4,300 during the official fund-raising drive event, occurring Friday in downtown Montreal. Added to the initial $5,000 donation by the club announced earlier this week, the Alouettes are excited to donate close to $10,000 the Red Cross Spring Floods Appeal – Quebec.
Many of the Alouettes’ players, including Kyries Hebert, Tyrell Sutton, Boris Bede and Jean-Samuel Blanc, were on hand, collecting funds and meeting with the many donors in front of the team’s administrative offices at the corner of Ste. Catherine and Robert-Bourassa. The administrative staff, the cheerleaders and the mascot Touché! have also united their efforts to help those affected by these events. The Alouettes General Manager, Kavis Reed was also on site, amassing donations, shaking hands and thanking in person the generous crowd.
The Alouettes family wish to thank the many donors for their kindness and generosity. Those who graciously answered the call have been invited to attend the preseason game on Thursday, June 15 as the Alouettes take on the Ottawa REDBLACKS, exactly one week before the 2017 season opener against the Saskatchewan Roughriders at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium.
