Vancouver, BC – The Vancouver Canucks, in partnership with Pharmasave, are pleased to announce the launch of this year's official Vancouver Canucks calendar. Calendars are now on-sale for $4.99 with partial proceeds benefiting Canuck Place Children's Hospice.
This is the first year that the Vancouver Canucks and Pharmasave have teamed up to produce the popular calendar. Over the past seven years, an estimated $675,000 has been raised in support of Canuck Place Children's Hospice, with $75,000 raised in calendar sales during the 2007-08 season.
The calendar features interesting facts and statistics on Vancouver Canucks players, as well as a team photo pullout poster. The 2008-09 Vancouver Canucks calendars are now available at all 110 Pharmasave stores in British Columbia.
The Vancouver Canucks charitable arm, the Canucks for Kids Fund, supported Canuck Place with over $1.7 million in the 2007-08 season. Canuck Place Children’s Hospice offers specialized care for BC children living with life-threatening conditions. The program is unique in that it offers world-class health care within a home-like environment. Services include 24 hour/7 days-a-week nursing and physician support, respite care, end-of-life care, pain and symptom management, school, music and play therapy, recreation opportunities and counseling services. Since 1995, the Canucks, through events, programs and the generous support of Canucks fans and sponsor partners, have donated nearly $20 million to this wonderful home away from home.
