Funds will benefit hundreds of children's charities

TORONTO, Dec. 20, 2012 /CNW/ - CIBC (TSX:CM) (NYSE:CM) announced today that $4.5 million was raised for children's charities on CIBC Miracle Day.

"CIBC Miracle Day is all about investing in Canadian children. We're very proud to dedicate our time and energy each year to support kids across the country," said Richard Nesbitt, Senior Executive Vice-President, CIBC. "Thanks to the generosity of hundreds of CIBC employees, our clients and many celebrities, thousands of children will have a brighter 2013."

CIBC Miracle was held on December 5, 2012 and a number of celebrities volunteered their time to raise awareness and support for kids-in-need. "For me to be a part of CIBC Miracle Day is a blessing," said Hollywood superstar Mark Wahlberg, who joined CIBC employees on the bank's Toronto trading floor. "It's all about the kids. I certainly can't forget about where I came from or the kids who are facing the obstacles that I had to face and overcome."

In addition to Mark Wahlberg, other celebrity volunteers included Kevin O'Leary, Michael "Pinball" Clemons, Tie Domi, Rosie MacLennan, Simon Whitfield and Trevor Linden.

"A heartfelt thanks to our brokers, traders, clients and special supporters," said Monique Gravel, Head of CIBC Wood Gundy. "The results of the 2012 CIBC Miracle Day are truly outstanding and are a testament to the passion and dedication of our employees who are making a meaningful difference for kids in their communities."

Every year since 1984, on the first Wednesday in December, CIBC's wholesale banking employees and participating CIBC Wood Gundy investment advisors have donated their fees and commissions to support children in need across the country. In the past 28 years, CIBC Miracle Day has raised nearly $69 million in Canada.
