About 30 NHL stars from past and present will take part in the annual Maritime NHLers 4 Kids fundraising dinner, auction and golf tournament next week.
The tournament, which rotates around the Maritimes, has raised a lot of money through the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program which helps kids, who may not otherwise be able to, afford to play hockey.
This year’s golf event will be held at Crowbush Golf Course near Lakeside next Thursday, July 27th.
The Gala Celebrity Dinner & Auction takes place Wednesday night, July 26th at 6 o’clock at the Delta Prince Edward Hotel, where hockey legend Forbie Kennedy will be honoured with a special tribute.
On Wednesday afternoon, store owner Cam Beach and Canadian Tire Charlottetown will hold a meet and greet with nine of the player celebrities in the store to greet fans.
A year ago 80 kids on the Island benefited from the Maritime NHLers 4 Kids program.
