TD Canada Trust to rock Canadians at Virgin Festival
TD signs up as national sponsor of Canada's biggest rock festival TORONTO, May 21 /CNW/ - Canada's most comfortable bank will become Canada's "rockin-est" bank this summer with the announcement, today, that it has signed up as a national sponsor of Virgin Festival Canada. Virgin Festival Canada has established itself as one of the top rock festivals in North America. Since the first-ever Canadian Virgin Festival launched in Toronto in September 2006, about 100,000 music lovers have lived the Virgin Festival experience. This year Virgin Festival will rock Calgary and Toronto. TD Canada Trust will sponsor the TD Music Stage at Virgin Festival Calgary (June 21, 22) and Virgin Festival Toronto (September 6, 7). For more information about both cities visit www.virginfestival.ca. Through its TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, TD will also be a major presence in the Virgin Festival Green Spot -- a designated area within the festival dedicated to raising awareness about the environment. The TD Friends of the Environment Foundation Green Zone will feature unique giveaways, environmental exhibits, and energy saving innovations such as solar powered computer stations and solar powered camera charging stations. "TD Canada Trust is all about comfort and, for many, so is music -- it's why we sponsor so many music events and jazz festivals across the country. And for a whole generation of Canadians, many of them our customers, hanging out at a rock festival, taking in the sun and the fresh air and listening to their favourite acts is as comfortable as it gets," said Tim Hockey, Group Head Personal Banking, Co-Chair TD Canada Trust. And to make the festival experience even more comfortable, The TD Comfort Crew will be on hand at each festival dispensing sunscreen, hand sanitizer and cooling mist to the crowds. TD and Music Canadians love music and, at TD, so do we. So we're proud to be part of bringing the best in music to our communities and our customers through sponsorships that include nine of Canada's foremost jazz festivals, Canadian Idol and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, and by supporting important and exciting music programs like the National Youth Orchestra, Piano Plus and the TD Canada Trust Family Concerts. With all the things we're already doing with music, sponsoring Virgin's Mobile Music Festivals in Canada just feels, well, comfortable.
