The Moncton Events Centre has a name…A new Brunswick company…Avenir Hearing…has purchased the five year rights to have it’s name on the centre. Avenir is a New Brunswick owned audiology group with 11 clinics across the province. Dr. Denis LeBlanc, the company’s founder and president, said acquiring the naming rights of the centre was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that Avenir couldn’t pass up. Avenir apparently also saw this as an opportunity to educate event and concert-goers on hearing health. They’ll be giving away free earplugs onsite so people can enjoy shows and events while also protecting their hearing.
Careful at the pub this weekend…
