PRINCE GEORGE – When Prince George hosts the nation at the 2007 RBC Royal Bank Cup, it will be with the full support of Prince George’s number one realty company.

Host Committee Co Chair Dan Rogers says the committee is excited to welcome RE/MAX to the growing list of sponsors for the 2007 RBC Royal Bank Cup, and expects to have more announcements in the near future. “Northern BC is passionate about hockey and we have found a number of community-minded organizations that are excited about aligning themselves with this great national championship,” says Rogers.

The RE/MAX partnership was announced today as the host committee unveiled street banners which will be hung along 15th Avenue to promote the 2007 RBC Royal Bank Cup and the event sponsors.

With the RBC Royal Bank Cup less than six months away, the committee is working hard to ensure the 2007 event is the best ever in the event’s history. “We are in the process of building our volunteer committees and going through the planning that hosting this type of major event requires,” says Rogers. “We are confident that we will achieve our mission of hosting the best ever RBC Royal Bank Cup.”
