The Vancouver Canucks proudly hosted the 20th Annual Canucks Dice & Ice on Friday, February 14, 2020 at the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver, raising $767,000 for the Canucks for Kids Fund. This must-attend event has been a highlight of Vancouver's social and philanthropic scene for 20 years. The entire Vancouver Canucks roster of player, coaches and management attend alongside more than 700 of Vancouver's business and social elite. The evening kicks off with an elegant faux-money casino reception, followed by an elegant plated three-course meal, exclusive live and silent auction, games, entertainment and of course the always-popular Canucks rookie entertainment. We're unsure if we will be hosting a Dice & Ice Gala for the 2021.22 season due to Covid-19 protocols, but please stay tuned for any further updates.
