Vancouver, BC – The Canucks for Kids Fund (CFKF), in conjunction with General Motors of Canada, is proud to announce that Richard Beaudoin has won the 2015 Canucks for Kids Fund Telethon Truck Draw. The Canucks fan from Edmonton is now the proud new owner of a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71, the Motor Trend Truck of the Year, donated by Chevrolet. Beaudoin watched the Telethon as part of Rogers Sportsnet’s national broadcast of the Canucks vs. Jets game on March 24th.
“I’ve never really won anything before so this was quite the surprise,” said Richard Beaudoin. “I’m from Edmonton but I’m a huge Canucks fan. The organization does terrific work in the community and it’s great to be able to support a good cause like this.”
