THE GORDIE HOWE C.A.R.E.S. PRO-AM HOCKEY TOURNAMENT
April 7th – 8th, 2018
This world class event puts together weekend hockey warriors with their heroes from the NHL Alumni in a fun filled weekend focused on raising funds towards Alzheimer’s.
The Alzheimer’s Pro-Am has raised over $5 million dollars over the past three years.
All proceeds to date have gone towards furthering the research and awareness of what many believe to be Canada’s future largest epidemic, Alzheimer’s, dementia and related mental illnesses.
All future funds will go towards programs, education, training, research and care for those suffering with Alzheimer’s/Dementia disease.
The weekend kicks off with a luncheon on Friday, April 6th, followed by the draft night and a 2 day tournament at Winsport. This charity event pairs local amateur hockey players with the favourite NHL Alumni like Bryan Trottier and Lanny McDonald as they drop the puck in the battle against Alzheimer’s and other related dementias.
Each team will raise a minimum of $25,000, and based on total dollars raised, which will determine the draft order to draft a former NHL player to join their team. Teams will then spend the weekend playing hockey and sharing stories and camaraderie with some of the Alumni’s greatest.
Don’t miss this chance to play hockey with and against some of your favourite former NHL players, while creating lasting memories and raising money for a great cause.
