Westminster Savings Announces Sponsorship of the Adanacs for 2015 Season

New Westminster, B.C., May 13, 2015 - Westminster Savings is pleased to announce it is sponsoring the Coquitlam Senior Adanac Lacrosse team (the Adanacs) for the upcoming 2015 season.

Winners of the 2001 Mann Cup, the Coquitlam-based semi-pro team is a long-standing member of the Western Lacrosse Association (WLA). As a non-profit society, the Adanacs rely on support from sponsors and fans to keep it viable, and that includes getting floor time in the Coquitlam Sports Centre, as well as funding for coaches, medical staff and new equipment.

"Support from our sponsors and fans is a vital component in keeping the Adanacs in the WLA and fighting for our next Mann Cup win," says Yvan Lomas, member of the Adanacs Board of Directors. "As we're celebrating our 50th year, we're thrilled to have Westminster Savings as our corporate jersey sponsor for the upcoming season."

As the corporate jersey sponsor, the Westminster Savings logo will be on the front upper left corner of the players’ jerseys. Westminster Savings will also receive advertising on the Adanacs website, mentions on its Facebook page and a half-page program advertisement.

"Sponsoring the Adanacs is one way we can give back to our local communities, and also helps promote our brand in our trade areas," says Gavin Toy, President and CEO, Westminster Savings. "Of course, we're excited that it's a high-calibre lacrosse team, but the fact that it has such deep roots in our community makes it a great fit for Westminster Savings."
