Funkytown and Electric Avenue 'Butt Out for Bucks' and Raise Funds for Cancer Calling All Bars and Restaurants: Sell Your Ashtrays and Support the Fondation Quebecoise Du Cancer

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - June 1, 2006) - Montreal clubs FunkyTown and Electric Avenue, and in conjunction with the Fondation Quebecoise du Cancer, announced the launch today of a campaign to help augment the quality of life for people living with cancer, as well as the new non-smoking laws in the Quebec province. Calling it 'Butt Out for Bucks,' ashtrays remaining in both clubs will be sold for a $5.00 sponsorship at the door, beginning Friday, June 2nd and all proceeds will go directly to the Fondation Quebecoise du Cancer.

"We are extremely proud to be launching this fundraising campaign," said George Pappas, co-owner of both clubs. "Approximately 23,500 bars and restaurants are located in the province of Quebec and most, like in our clubs, have a lot of ashtrays now unable to use. Thousands of dollars could be raised through the Butt Out for Bucks campaign, if all Quebec bars and restaurants embark."

Marie-Pierre Grenier of the Fondation Quebecoise du Cancer noted, "the Fondation helps people with cancer and their families live and cope much better. 38,000 people are inflicted with Cancer each year and 53% survive cancer more quickly when their treatment includes better living conditions - something the Fondation is committed to providing for victims."
