Montreal, QC – April 23, 2014. We are pleased to announce that Maxxam is continuing our tradition of supporting Canadian NHL teams during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. This year, customers and employees can bid on Montreal Canadiens’ tickets, clothing and autographed gear through our online charity auction, with all proceeds going to the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation.
To kick off fundraising efforts, Maxxam donated $2,500 to the Foundation. The company will also match employee and customer donations dollar-for-dollar up to $7,500. Anyone can participate by visiting the online charity auction site or making a donation at employee-organized events at Maxxam’s environmental and food operations (road hockey/skills competition and BBQ event details to be announced).
Check the auction site often as we will add new items throughout Montreal’s playoff run.
