QSL SECURES SUPPORT for the Maritime CupMarch 3, 2020
The Members of the Maritime Community Went Head to Head – On the Ice!
As part of the Maritime Cup, four heads of major maritime companies rallied their troops and donned jerseys in their company colours to take the ice at the Videotron Centre.
The quest for the cup culminated in an exciting showdown among teams from Fednav, OCEAN Group, Canada Steamship Lines (CSL), and QSL, who all took part to benefit three organizations.
The teams in the tournament chose to play for bragging rights and put up $5,000 each to support a cause or organization they care about. At the end of the high-stakes tournament, the $20,000 put up by the companies was donated as follows:
- $10,000 to Pignon Bleu, the organization chosen by Ocean Group, which won the tournament
- $5,000 to the Mariners’ House of Montreal, the organization chosen by Fednav, which came in second
- $2,500 to Jeunes musiciens du monde, the organization chosen by QSL, which came in third
- $2,500 to the Mariners’ House of Montreal, the organization chosen by CSL, which came in fourth
“My colleagues in the marine community didn’t miss a beat—they accepted QSL’s invitation immediately. We all have a desire to give back and make a difference in our communities. At QSL, we’re so proud that our teams and employees jumped at the chance to support causes that are in line with our values.”
Robert Bellisle, QSL President and CEO
