This February, Oilers forward Ryan Jones
teamed up with the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) to challenge Oil Country to “Save the Flow” in support of children’s charities. Jones is known for his signature locks and instead of raising money to shave them off during the annual Hair Massacure, he asked for your help to save them - and save them you did!
Due to the overwhelming generosity of fans and contributions from both the EOCF and Jones, over $15,000 was raised. On March 28, the EOCF was proud to present over $5,000 to each of the following three charities supported by the Hair Massacure:
- The Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation – accepted by Jan Archbold, Vice President Marketing & Communications
- Ronald McDonald House Northern Alberta – accepted by Martin Dugas, Executive Director
- Make A Wish Northern Alberta – accepted by Bruce Bevan, Board of Directors President
