Edmonton Oiler Sheldon Souray will be making a guest appearance in the first intermission of the February 25th Edmonton Oil Kings game versus the Red Deer Rebels in the Souray shoots at Sean for the Stollery Radiothon promotion. CISN Country’s Sean Burke will be suiting up to be on the receiving end of one of the heaviest shots in the NHL. For each of Sheldon’s 10 shots that hit Burke, a donation will be made to the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation in support of the Stollery Children’s Hospital Radiothon which begins March 4th.
Oil Country fans have the opportunity to sponsor one of Sheldon’s shots for $1000. All the funds raised will go towards the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation Radiothon which airs March 4thand 5th on CISN Country 103.9, 92.5 JOE FM and 630 CHED. Every cent raised during the Radiothon will be directed to the hospital’s priority needs including a Da Vinci robotic surgical system, EEG monitors and research aimed at finding better treatments and cures for childhood illnesses and diseases. To sponsor this event, please contact Deborah McKinnon at 780-431-4614.
"We're excited to be a part of this unique initiative and to have the chance to work with CISN Country, the Oil Kings, Edmonton Oiler Sheldon Souray and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation," said Jennifer Wood, President & CEO, Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation. "Funds raised at the Oil Kings game will go to priority needs at the Stollery Children's Hospital, ensuring every child has access to the very best care."
