RED DEER – The Hockey Alberta Foundation is excited to announce the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship as the official presenting sponsor of the 2021 Hockey Alberta Foundation Golf Classic.
The annual event will be held July 19-21 at the prestigious Silvertip Golf Resort in Canmore and all funds raised go directly to the Every Kid Every Community program. A portion of the World Juniors commitment to the 2021 Hockey Alberta Foundation Golf Classic will be used to match funds raised on the charity donation hole – up to $10,000.
“We are thrilled to welcome the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship as a presenting sponsor of the golf classic this year,” said Tim Leer, Executive Director of the Hockey Alberta Foundation. “Hosting the World Juniors two years in a row inspires kids across the province to play hockey and the foundation has the capacity to help make those dreams a reality for every kid in every community across Alberta.”
The 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship is set to return to Edmonton and Red Deer from Dec. 26 – Jan. 5, 2022.
“The 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship is proud to support the 2021 Hockey Alberta Foundation Golf Classic,” said Riley Wiwchar, Executive Director of the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship. “As part of the World Junior legacy, we want to build the game into a more welcoming and inclusive environment and engage new players into the sport, an opportunity that the foundation provides.”
The Hockey Alberta Foundation raises funds through events, such as the golf classic, to support initiatives that provide programming, enhance development and enable kids across the province to participate in hockey. Hockey Alberta and the Hockey Alberta Foundation provide quarterly grants through the Every Kid Every Community program for player assistance or community programming.
