Calgary, AB — The 2007 IIHF World Women’s Champions will be honoured at a Celebrity Classic Gala Dinner and Golf Tournament June 25th and 26th, hosted by The Canadian Hockey Foundation. The World Junior Champions will also be honoured at the same event.

This is the first time Calgary will host this annual two-day event.

The Gala Fundraiser Dinner will be held at the TELUS Convention Centre in Calgary, AB, on Monday, June 25th. This year’s Honorary Chairmen are Harley N. Hotchkiss, and Daryl K. (Doc) Seaman. We will be honouring Canada’s two most recent World Championship hockey teams – the World Junior Championship team and the World Women’s Championship team – with a championship ring ceremony. Other well known Team Canada Alumni and hockey personalities will be in attendance. The event will be hosted by Gord Miller and Pierre McGuire of TSN.

On Tuesday, June 26th, this year’s honorees from Canada’s National Teams will captain and sponsor teams at a Celebrity golf tournament at the Heritage Pointe Golf Club. This 27 hole championship course is located in the beautiful Pine Creek Valley.

The Canadian Hockey Foundation looks to raise nearly $1 Million in revenue with this event. Funds will be used for the Foundation’s endowment program to preserve Canada’s hockey heritage, continue our winning tradition, and support the future development and delivery of Hockey Canada programs, projects, and activities. Hockey Canada programs include projects such as: skill development, training for coaches, continued growth of female hockey, player/parent education on hockey’s core values of respect, responsibility and pure enjoyment of our game, and providing opportunities for new Canadians and underprivileged youth to participate in organized hockey.
