Media Advisory: Marianopolis College Launches Capital Fundraising Campaign

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - March 29, 2006) - For the first time in 98 years Marianopolis launches an ambitious fundraising campaign to help underwrite some of the costs associated with the move to their newly acquired campus in Westmount.

The official public launch of the campaign Moving Hearts and Mind / Vers de nouveaux horizons will take place at 11:15 AM on April 5th, 2006, at the future location of the College at 4873 Westmount Avenue. There is an open invitation to the media to this event.

The Marianopolis Community will be introducing the campaign priorities and announcing some exciting new donations already made to spearhead the fundraising effort. The goal of the campaign is $10 million, and the money raised will be used to help the College with the construction of a new gym as well as extensive interior renovations to the original building, which was constructed as a school in 1925 and was the home of Marianopolis College from 1926 - 1943.
