RED DEER – The Glencross Invitational is celebrating its 10th anniversary of raising funds for charitable organizations in central Alberta with the second annual Charity Hockey Tournament and Celebrity Poker Event on October 19.
Over the past decade, the Glencross Invitational has raised $1.8 million for the Hockey Alberta Foundation and Ronald McDonald House Charities Alberta through the Glencross Roughstock event, and last year’s inaugural hockey tournament and poker event.
This year’s edition of the Glencross Invitational sees the Charity Hockey Tournament hosted at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre followed by the Celebrity Poker Event at the Harvest Centre in Red Deer.
Four teams compete on the ice in the morning. Each team of 15 skaters and a goaltender includes five celebrities and an appearance by a celebrity guest coach. A limited number of player spots are available for purchase, as well as tickets to watch the action unfold. Once the skates are hung up, cards are dealt for the Celebrity Poker Event.
“We’re excited to celebrate 10 years of the Glencross Invitational and are looking forward to getting back on the ice,” said Curtis Glencross. “When we started this, we didn’t have a goal dollar, but to be 10 years in and have raised nearly $2 million for children and families across Alberta is pretty incredible.”
More information on the partnership opportunities is available in the Sponsorship Package below. Tickets to watch the tournament are available online.
