Hockey Canada Foundation Virtual Gala


 

The Hockey Canada Foundation is excited to announce that it will be
hosting its inaugural Virtual Gala on June 14th, 2021

Join us for our inaugural virtual gala in support of Hockey Canada Foundation’s flagship program – the Assist Fund. While it’s our first year going digital, the Gala has been the marquee fundraiser for the Hockey Canada Foundation since 2003.

In the decade spanning 2009 to 2019, the Hockey Canada Foundation contributed more than $4.4 million in net proceeds to various projects in Canadian communities, allowing the game to continue to grow and prosper from coast to coast to coast.

A cornerstone component of the Hockey Canada Foundation Gala is celebrating the Distinguished Honourees of the Order of Hockey in Canada. This year presents a unique opportunity to double down on the celebration as we will be recognizing the Order honourees from both 2020 and 2021.

Recipients include:

2020                                       2021

Ken Dryden                            Bill Hay
Sheldon Kennedy                  Angela James
Dr. Charles Tator                   Kevin Lowe

In addition, go into the kitchen with a trio of accomplished Team Canada alumni, and hear from some of the best young players in the game – 2020 World Juniors hero Akil Thomas, 2014 Olympic gold medallist Mélodie Daoust and U18 captain Shane Wright – for a one-night-only hot stove, talking about their experiences wearing the Maple Leaf and the role the game plays in their lives.

All proceeds from the event and auction support the Hockey Canada Foundation Assist Fund, which is helping get Canadian families facing financial hardship back on the ice.

Thank you Hockey Canada. If not for the Assist Fund, we would have to choose which one of our four sons gets to play hockey.” – Angela & Felipe, ON
