I invite you to continue building your community, never doubt your forward thinking, your action and, of course, your hard work. These are just some of the values that have helped us get to where we are now and as we move into the next 100 years they will surely continue to define Airdrie as a very special place to live.
Sheldon Kennedy promotes Wild Rose Hockey Challenge
Former Flame Sheldon Kennedy is teaming up with Wild Rose MP Blake Richards to promote the fourth annual Wild Rose Hockey Challenge.
The popular charity hockey game between federal MPs and provincial MLAs is a major fundraising initiative in support of four victims’ assistance units: the Bow Valley Victim Services Association, the Airdrie and District Victim Assistance Society, the Cochrane and Area Victim Services Society and the Chinook Arch Victim Services Society. Last year’s event raised $83,000.
“This is one of my favourite charity events of the summer,” said Kennedy, “It’s a lot of fun to play in this game, and it gives fans a great chance to personally meet the players and it’s for a great cause.”
Kennedy headlines a long list of former and current NHLers to take part in the contest. Local hockey fans may also know Calgary’s Nick Johnson, now with the Minnesota Wild, former Flames Tony Stiles and Dwayne Hay and Airdrie’s Dana Tyrell of the Tamp Bay Lightning.
This year’s event will be held Aug. 18 in the Alex Kaleta Arena at the Canmore Recreation Centre. Doors open for a meet and greet with the players at 2:30 p.m. and the game begins at 4 p.m. Tickets are available online at: http://www.blakerichards.ca/wildrosehockey/
