We're still looking for a few more teams and individual players to help fill our tournament. It's a great way to promote a business (each jersey will have the company name on it) and it's a really unique VIP hockey experience. This is our second year for this tournament in Oakville and we already have 12 of the 16 teams confirmed and expect the tournament to sell out, which would give us approximately 320 players in the tournament (plus staff, celebrities and volunteers).
To give you an idea of the scope of the project, the four tournaments are expected to generate almost $1m to help kids with physical disabilities. The Celebrity Hockey Classic offers hockey enthusiasts the opportunity to compete in a hockey tournament with former NHL greats. Participants also have the opportunity to attend an exclusive VIP Draft Party at Drafted (formerly Philthy McNasty's) in Oakville on Thursday, November 20, 2014, where team members and participating NHL greats will join together for an evening of free food, fun and festivities. Each team will draft one former NHL great to play on their team, with the team who raises the most money having first pick of the draft. Each team is guaranteed a minimum of 3 games during the one-day hockey tournament at Sixteen Mile Sports Complex in Oakville.
Participation is easy - just raise a minimum of $400 per player (up to 20 players per team). Online fundraising tools and incentives make it easy for you to reach your goal. We have officially confirmed Brad May as this year's Tournament Captain. He will be joined by 20 additional celebrities, some of whom will be confirmed closer to the event. 2014 celebrities include (but are not limited to): . Matthew Barnaby . Ric Nattress . Rick Vaive . Troy Crowder . Todd Warriner . Mike Krushelnyski . Gary Leeman . Al Iafrate . Tom Fergus . Scott Morrison (Hockey Night in Canada, Celebrity MC)
Each Team Will Receive:
- The opportunity to play with and against some of hockey's most accomplished and admired icons!
- Personalized autographs from celebrity participants
- Team jerseys with matching socks
- Invitation to the VIP Draft Party at Drafted on November 20, 2014 - food and drinks are provided
- Access to a personalized team web page and support network to help you raise the most money possible for your team
Please let me know if you know of anyone that might be interested. Thanks!
