The 2007 IIHF World Junior Champions will be honoured at a Celebrity Classic Gala Dinner and Golf
Tournament June 25th and 26th, 2007, hosted by The Canadian Hockey Foundation.
This is the first time Calgary will host this annual two-day event. The event provides an opportunity for
corporations, business and community leaders, and Canada’s hockey community to join in the celebration of our
country’s recent World Junior Championship. This is the third year in a row that Canada has won this vaunted
The Gala Fundraiser Dinner will be held at the TELUS Convention Centre in Calgary, AB, on Monday, June
25th. The Gala will once again be hosted by TSN’s Gord Miller and Pierre McGuire, and will feature fantastic
live and silent auctions, and a championship ring presentation to the players.
On Tuesday, June 26th, this year’s honorees from Canada’s National Junior Team will captain sponsor teams
at a golf tournament at the Heritage Pointe Golf Club. This championship 27 hole 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.
