AFTER THE FLOOD: Hockey Legend Finally Gets to Make Birthday Dreams Come True for Young Fans

Local Family Hosts Craig Conroy for the Ultimate BELATED Birthday Party

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sept. 25, 2013) - What is the 'Ultimate BELATED Birthday Party?'

Doug and Louise purchased an auction item at MCSC's annual Gala this April. What was that auction item? An afternoon of street hockey at their home with none other than Mr. Craig Conroy!

Saturday June 22nd 2013 was supposed to be a dream day for two hockey fans. Together with Doug and Louise Thubron, MCSC and Craig Conroy were thrilled to be celebrating their two eldest son's birthdays with a street hockey experience they wouldn't soon forget.

Due to the mass flooding in Calgary, the street hockey game was unfortunately cancelled. BUT the game is back on!

As a board member of MCSC, Craig Conroy will be playing street hockey with 20 lucky kids. Friends and neighbours will be cheering on the game, and checking if their kids can go toe to toe with the hockey great.
