VANCOUVER, B.C. - The Vancouver Canucks will once again attend the sold-out Sports Celebrities Festival on Wednesday, October 14th, 2009 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. This year’s business casual event is held in support of the Canucks for Kids Fund and Special Olympics BC. Last year’s event was very successful, having raised more than $250,000 in net proceeds.
The Sports Celebrities Festival will feature members of the Vancouver Canucks, Canucks Alumni, Canadian Olympian Beckie Scott, Canadian Paralympian Greg Westlake, Canadian comedian Brent Butt, BC Lions Alumni, and Special Olympics BC athletes.
Prior to the dinner, Canucks players will partake in fan-interactive games, including table hockey, a Nintendo Wii gaming zone and photo sessions.
