In honour of Joey Moss' 55th birthday and 35 years with the Edmonton Oilers, the Oilers Foundation will celebrate Joey's dedication to the community alongside the entire roster of the 2018-19 Edmonton Oilers, management and Oilers Alumni for an unforgettable evening of glitz and glam, Vegas style, including an exciting casino where the players are the dealers! 

Proceeds from the event will be used to create the Special Olympics Edmonton Joey Moss Invitational Floor Hockey Tournament and the Edmonton Down Syndrome Society Joey Moss Literacy Centre for Excellence.

"What better way to celebrate Joey Moss's accomplishments and the impact that he has had in the local sport and charitable community than by partnering with two charities that are close to his heart," said EOCF Executive Director Natalie Minckler. "These two programs are the perfect complement to the EOCF's mandate to support health and wellness, education and minor hockey programming for youth in Northern Alberta."

Special Olympics Edmonton is committed to enriching the lives of Albertans with an intellectual disability through sport. Their vision is to ensure any individuals with an intellectual disability are given the opportunity to realize their full athletic potential. The Joey Moss Invitational Floor Hockey Tournament combines Joey's passion for hockey and the importance of recreation to develop life skills, a healthy body and self-esteem. The funds from the gala will help advance the quality of SOE's programs by improving facilities, generating more resources and providing additional coach development.

TAIT: ICE School takes learning to a new class

Cam Tait writes about ICE School, a program where students are given the opportunity to move their classroom into Rogers Place

by Cam Tait / OilersFoundation.ca

The sounds coming from the southwest corner of Rogers Place sent sure signals there was an Edmonton Oilers hockey game taking place. Cheering, clapping and the iconic "Let's Go Oilers" chant drifted outside the glass doors bordering 104 Ave. Sightings of the Oilers mascot, Hunter the Lynx, were also reported in the building. The timing, however, didn't make sense: it was just 11:15 AM on a Friday. Very few Oilers games face off at that time of the day. Still, uncontrollable excitement couldn't be harnessed and here was the amazing part: the person, or rather animal, causing this unmediated mayhem did not speak one word, nor one syllable, nor even make a single sound.
