The 2021 Gordie Howe C.A.R.E.S. Pro-Am pairs weekend hockey warriors with their heroes from the NHL Alumni Association for a fun-filled weekend of hockey, focused on raising funds in support of Alzheimer’s and dementia research. Believed to be Canada’s future largest epidemic, Alzheimer’s, dementia and dementia related behaviors require tremendous support. The Gordie Howe C.A.R.E.S. foundation aims to create programs, education, training, research and care for those suffering with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
The weekend kicks off with a luncheon on Friday, May 7th 2021, followed by the draft night and a 2-day tournament at Flames Community Arena. This charity event pairs local amateur hockey players with their favourite NHL Alumni like Lanny McDonald, as they drop the puck in the battle against Alzheimer’s and other related dementias.
Each team is required to raise a minimum of $25,000 and based on total dollars raised it 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!
