Media Advisory-REMINDER/Annual Molson Coors Blood Drive: Join the Montreal Canadiens Alumni and Molson Coors Employees at the Brewery

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 23, 2010) - For the fourth year running, Molson Coors invites the general public to give the gift of blood during their annual blood drive. This year, Molson Coors is proud to partner with the Montreal Canadiens Alumni. The event, organized in collaboration with Héma-Québec, will take place next Friday, April 23, at the John-Molson Room, located at the Molson Brewery on Notre-Dame Street East.

From 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., several former Montreal Canadiens players, including Yvan Cournoyer, Pierre Bouchard, Yvon Lambert, Patrice Brisebois and Réjean Houle, will take turns thanking donors for their generosity.

Event spokespeople, Montreal Canadiens Alumni President Réjean Houle and Molson Coors Community Relations Manager Monique Dépatie, will be on hand for on-site interviews during the day.

Facts to bear in mind:

  • Did you know that a single blood donation can save up to four lives?
  • Did you know that, in Quebec, someone needs blood every 80 seconds?
  • Did you know that 1,000 blood donations a day are necessary to meet hospital needs?
