The Piper Creek Optimists present The Battle of Alberta Fundraiser for EKEC
Fourth Annual Piper Creek Optimist Club of Red Deer’s Battle of Alberta fundraiser
RED DEER - The Hockey Alberta Foundation is excited to once again partner with the Piper Creek Optimist Club of Red Deer for the fourth straight year to present the Battle of Alberta Fundraiser at Bo’s Bar & Stage, benefiting the Every Kid Every Community (EKEC) program. In three years, the Battle of Alberta event has raised over $50,000 for EKEC, as well as $15,000 for additional youth programs in Central Alberta.
Once again, two grand prizes will be available to win through a raffle:
- Four tickets to the January 11 Calgary Flames game against the Edmonton Oilers at the Scotiabank Saddledome, and a limo ride from Red Deer to Calgary, and back.
- Four tickets to the January 29 Edmonton Oilers game against the Calgary Flames at Rogers Place, and a limo ride from Red Deer to Edmonton, and back.
Only 400 tickets will be sold. The draw for both grand prizes will be done on Saturday, January 4 at Bo’s Bar and Grill. You do not need to be present on January 4 to win either of the grand prizes.
Raffle tickets are $40 each (plus online fees). Your ticket will also grant you entry to Bo’s on January 4, as well as an appetizer buffet, one beverage courtesy of Molson Coors, a chance to win the early bird prize, and door prizes throughout the night. The night also features a Hockey Hot Stove, sponsored by MNP, with former Calgary Flame, two-time Stanley Cup Champion Jamie Macoun, and Dave Hunter, a three-time Stanley Cup champion with the Edmonton Oilers.
Doors for the event will open at 5pm, with the Early Bird Draw at 6:30pm, and the final draw at 9:30pm. You must be in attendance to win early bird and door prizes.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Every Kid Every Community program, as well as other youth initiatives in Central Alberta.
The Hockey Alberta Foundation would like to thank all of the generous sponsors of this event: the Piper Creek Optimist Club of Red Deer, Bo’s Bar and Grill, MNP, Viking Projects Ltd, Vada Capital, Gavin Heintz - Century 21 and the Molson Coors Brewing Company.
