Bank of Montreal conducts Raptors contest
BMO Bank of Montreal has begun a contest in association with specialty television channel The Score and the Toronto Raptors basketball team called the "BMO $100,000 Bankshot." To enter, viewers must submit a secret word that will appear during Raptors broadcasts through The Score's website. One random entrant will attend a Raptors game on April 9. During the game, this contestant will have three chances to win up to $6,000 by sinking basketball shots. After this, The Score personality Cabral Richards will attempt to shoot a basket from the middle of the court. If he succeeds, the contestant will win $100,000. "BMO is very proud to be the official bank of the Toronto Raptors," said Sandy Bourne, vice-president of advertising, sponsorships, events and merchandising at BMO Financial Group. "The contest represents an exciting way for us to be part of the Raptors and generate excitement for their fans."
