August 16, 2013, Vancouver, BC (ISN) – The BC Lions Football Club is pleased to announce this morning that McMillan LLP has joined the club’s growing roster of key partners.
“We are very pleased to welcome McMillan LLP to the BC Lions family,” said president and CEO Dennis Skulsky. “With western Canadian roots that date back to the 1920’s, McMillan brings decades of legal expertise and advice to our organization. This unique and groundbreaking partnership with an iconic name such as McMillan combined with their desire to extend corporate identity and community outreach across British Columbia, speaks to the growing strength of our brand as the Pride of all BC.”
In a partnership that represents a first for both McMillan and the Lions, the multi-year deal also includes a significant community commitment as well with McMillan joining the club’s Courage For Kids program in conjunction with the United Way of the Lower Mainland which gives less fortunate children an opportunity to attend BC Lions home games.
“McMillan is thrilled to be the first law firm in Canada to become an official partner of the BC Lions,” said Karl Gustafson, QC, Office Management Partner for McMillan’s Vancouver office. “McMillan sees a natural fit between our firm values – respect, teamwork, commitment, client service and professional excellence, and those values exhibited by the BC Lions – pride, decades of tradition, passion and a spirit of excellence.”
The next BC Lions home game is Saturday, August 17 at 6:00 pm versus the Calgary Stampeders presented by Tim Hortons. Tickets in the Gemstone Gridiron Deck ($30) and Freshslice Family Zone ($25) are available at Ticketmaster.ca.
