TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - March 05, 2015) - Last night, senior executives from Bay Street's financial, legal, technology and accounting sectors competed in the 11th annual SCRABBLE® Corporate Challenge, presented by TMX Group and hosted by David Chilton.

CIBC demonstrated their SCRABBLE® acumen and expertise by winning the TMX Cup with a score of 931 points. They will open the market at TSX on March 10. Funds raised at last night's event support Frontier College, Canada's original literacy organization.

"We offer our congratulations to the CIBC team for their exciting win and a big thank you to the sponsors and competing organizations for their support of Frontier College and literacy," said Sherry Campbell, President and CEO, Frontier College.

Sponsored by TMX Group, the SCRABBLE® Corporate Challenge hosted 37 teams at Arcadian Court for an evening of fun, while supporting literacy. Teams had the opportunity to up the ante by hiring local and international SCRABBLE® champions, to help spell winning words. While playing for the chance to win the TMX Cup, teams competed in their industry conferences. The 2015 conference winners are:

CIBC - Banking & Financial Services
PwC - Accounting & Consulting
McCarthy Tetrault - Legal
CaTECH Sytems Ltd. - Technology & Telecommunications
