Don Cherry Joins Ducks Unlimited Canada's Wetland Conservation Team

BARRIE, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 12, 2007) -

NOTE TO MEDIA: Stations can access the PSA's via FastChannel's DGONLINE website.

Canadian hockey icon Don Cherry has joined Ducks Unlimited Canada's Wetland Conservation Team by contributing a special auction item to this year's fundraising events that's sure to attract the attention of sports enthusiasts everywhere.

Cherry has made available to Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) a limited number of autographed replicas of his signature red plaid jacket, tie and high-collared shirt ensemble.

The limited edition "Cherry suit" is framed along with a Boston Bruin logo puck, photo of Cherry and his loyal pet dog Blue, and a serialized brass plate summarizing some of Cherry's many career accomplishments.

Cherry's unique and famous jacket, shirt and tie set are available only through DUC events. Never at a loss for words, Cherry is a strong and vocal supporter of DUC:

"Ducks Unlimited Canada's wetland conservation work is so important, and that's why I'm proud to do my part by providing them with autographed replicas of my famous jacket-and-tie! Not only is this jacket a real beauty, but the money raised at DUC events goes right into wetland conservation."

The Cherry display will likely be one of the most sought-after items at DU Canada's events this year. Revenue generated from the sale of the Don Cherry jacket will be directed to DUC's conservation, education and research programs. Since 1938, Ducks Unlimited Canada has conserved, restored and managed wetlands and associated habitats for the benefit of North America's waterfowl. These habitats - nature's water filters - also benefit other wildlife and people.
