Your Chance to Feel Like a Hockey Pro

Westcoast Families - - Wcf News -

Many of us dreamed of be­com­ing pro­fes­sional hockey play­ers when we were kids. Hockey Helps the Home­less tour­na­ments are de­signed to let you re­al­ize that dream by treat­ing you like a pro for a day. Over a hun­dred for­mer NHL play­ers have played in th­ese tour­na­ments over the past 17 years in­clud­ing greats like Mike Gart­ner, Lau­rie Boschman, Vin­cent Dam­p­housse, Theo Fleury and Kirk McLean. No de­tails are spared in mak­ing this an absolutely un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence:

• They dress you like a pro in your very own per­son­al­ized jersey

• Each player plays a min­i­mum of three games

• En­joy an on ice Skills Ses­sion with Canucks Alumni

• Get fed like a pro with a hearty lunch be­tween games and bev­er­ages in the dress­ing room and on the bench

• Ev­ery room is stocked with first aid sup­plies, tape, pucks and wa­ter bot­tles

• The event in­cludes a fab­u­lous silent auc­tion with valu­able prizes and one-ofa- kind mem­o­ra­bilia

• And fin­ish off with a for­mal re­cep­tion that in­cludes a fab­u­lous din­ner as par­tic­i­pants are treated to some words of en­cour­age­ment fea­tur­ing no­table guest speak­ers To­day, it is es­ti­mated that there are be­tween 150,000 and 300,000 home­less peo­ple in Canada, with chil­dren and young fam­i­lies mak­ing up the fastest grow­ing seg­ment of the home­less pop­u­la­tion -- de­spite the fact that Canada ranks as one of the top 20 wealth­i­est na­tions in the world.
