We’re looking for 32 hockey players – to lace up with some NHL hockey superstars

How many have dreamed of playing in the NHL? Or getting into a little on-ice scrap with Chris Neil?  Or how about being face-to-face with a hockey idol such as Guy Carbonneau.

Now it can all happen at the WDMH Foundation’s first-ever NHL Alumni Hockey Game in support of the General Equipment Fund. The event takes place on Saturday, October 14th at the Joel Steele Community Centre and Sam Ault Arena in Winchester. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the game starts at 7:30 pm.

Now, it’s time to form the teams! There are 32 positions available to join the NHL Alumni players on and off the ice. To qualify to play, there is a $250 registration fee, and players can either give or fundraise a minimum of $750 more (a minimum of $1,000 is needed to qualify to play). To register as a player and set up your fundraising website, visit: https://bit.ly/wdmhhockey-registration.  Please note that the NHL alumni celebrity roster is subject to change – but we know it’s going to be good!

“It’s our very own ‘Hockey Night in Winchester’!” explains Justine Plummer, Manager of Direct Mail & Events at the WDMH Foundation. “For those who want to play, we have a website ready to sign up, pay the registration fee and start fundraising. We know that everyone’s friends and family will support them in realizing their dream!”

The more money you raise, the better chance you have to choose your preferred playing position. Players will also have access to a VIP meet and greet after the game. Space is very limited so register and start fundraising soon. This is going to be fun!

And if you just want to come to watch the game and take part in all the fun, we have a website to buy tickets. Tickets to watch the game are $35 each. For $100, you can purchase a VIP ticket that also includes a Meet and Greet with the NHL Alumni players after the game. To purchase regular or VIP tickets, visit: https://bit.ly/wdmhhockey-tickets.

Throughout the evening, there will be a silent auction, raffles, games, and a free photo booth. Graham and Lori Ball will have Triple B Canteen open if you want to purchase dinner or a snack.  Local hockey enthusiast Liam Maguire will be our emcee for the evening. Thank you to Jackson Events for their support.

If you have questions or wish to purchase tickets at the hospital, please contact Justine Plummer at 613-774-2422 ext. 6172 or jplummer@wdmh.on.ca.
