Net proceeds of the event are going to the Canucks for Kids Fund and the NHLPA Goals & Dreams Fund. In 2010, this event raised in excess of $175,000 for the Canucks for Kids Fund and the NHLPA Goals & Dreams Fund. The Canucks Centre for BC Hockey, in partnership with BC Minor Hockey, raised an additional $2500 for minor hockey teams throughout BC.
This event allows Canucks players, joined by 16 minor hockey players, to showcase their skill and agility in six individual on-ice events and is a great and affordable way for families to see their favorite players in a fun atmosphere.
Doors will open at 12:00 pm with on-ice activities starting at 1:00 pm. Fans are encouraged to come early and watch the Canucks Alumni intra-squad game and take part in the various concourse activities, including the opportunity to have a photo taken with Canucks mascot Fin and many of his mascot friends.
