This year’s Hockey for the Homeless event in Vancouver was terrific. Given it was the 2nd year, it was clear the level of energy and excitement around the day was excellent and all the participants seemed pumped to be out playing some shinny for a great cause.
We were able to have one of best customers, Bill Anderson, from the UBC Alma Mater Society, participate on Molson Coors’ behalf. Being a hockey enthusiast, he was absolutely thrilled to be in the same games as such great former NHLer’s like Garth Butcher, Gary Valk and Kirk McLean.
Given Molson Coors’ strong ties to hockey, this is an event we should look to support on an ongoing basis. Cheers, Darren
