MONTREAL — Molson Coors and the Montreal Alouettes invite the general public to give the gift of blood during their annual blood drive. The event, organized in collaboration with Héma-Québec, will take place next Thursday, April 7, at the John Molson Room located at the Molson Brewery on Notre-Dame Street East.

From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., several current and former Alouettes, including Anthony Calvillo, John Bowman and Danny Desriveaux, along with a group of cheerleaders will take turns thanking donors for their generosity.

Event spokespeople, Montreal Alouettes offensive lineman Luc Brodeur-Jourdain and Molson Coors Community Relations Manager Monique Dépatie, will also be available for on-site interviews.
