Just Energy Donates 2,000 Marlies Tickets to Tim Horton Children's Foundation

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 24, 2010) - Just Energy (JE.UN), one of North America's leading energy retailers will donate 2,000 Toronto Marlies tickets to the Tim Horton Children's Foundation. This donation will provide an exciting opportunity for approximately 500 economically disadvantaged youth and their families to attend a Toronto Marlies game at Ricoh Coliseum.

Just Energy currently partners with the Tim Horton Children's Foundation to also provide local youth with the opportunity to High Five the Toronto Raptors as players enter the Air Canada Centre court moments before game tip off.

"We take great pleasure in the ability to provide unique and memorable experiences for such deserving young people who otherwise would not have the resources to participate" says Ken Hartwick, President and Chief Executive Officer of Just Energy. "These initiatives enable us to give back in a meaningful way to the communities in which we live, work and play."

Just Energy is an official corporate sponsor of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Marlies, as well as the NBA's Toronto Raptors, and Major League Soccer's Toronto FC.

The Tim Horton Children's Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization that provides a fun-filled camp environment for children from economically disadvantaged homes. Throughout the year, thousands of children are given the opportunity to attend camp designed to help them develop positive life skills, confidence and pride in their accomplishments.
