Wetaskiwin hosts Montreal Canadians alumni charity game

The Montreal Canadians Alumni Tour is stopping in Wetaskiwin to raise funds for a number of community organizations.

The Montreal Canadians Alumni Tour is stopping in Wetaskiwin for an exciting exhibition game to raise funds for a number of community organizations.

Proceeds from the Dec. 5 game will be donated to Wetaskiwin Minor Hockey, the Wetaskiwin Icemen Hockey Club and the Salvation Army.

“I was approached by them two years ago,” said hosting committee chair Neil Brown. He explained at the time hosting such as game would not have been possible but he always kept the opportunity in mind.

“This May I reached out to them again,” said Brown.

The alumni team will face off against the Wetaskiwin Supreme Selects at 2 p.m. The team roster will be made up of community members willing to pay the money to participate. “It’ll just be a local group of celebrities who are willing to pay X amount of dollars to play against the Montreal Canadian alumni team,” said Brown.

The charity game also includes two “thrill of a lifetime” positions where individuals can play alongside the Montreal Canadians team.

A $750 spot was also included in which the purchaser would be also to coach the alumni team.

Regular game tickets are $25 and tickets to the following VIP dinner held at the Wayside Inn starting at 5 p.m. are $100.

Tickets available at: Grant Thornton, Dyck Insurance, Coach’s Source for Sports, Wetaskiwin Civic Centre concession and the Wetaskiwin Icemen game day ticket office.
