Fans Invited to Meet Olympic Stars at Women's Hockey Game

Canadian Women's Hockey League Plans Fundraiser for CNIB

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 11, 2011) - On Saturday evening, February 19, come out and see the best in women's hockey. Then stay – and skate – as the fun continues. 

The Toronto Hockey Club of the Canadian Women's Hockey League (CWHL) is scheduled to play the Montreal team at 6:15 p.m. in the arena of the Master Card Centre. You are invited to this highly skilled sports event – and so are seven gold-medal Olympians: Kim St-Pierre, Caroline Ouellette, Sarah Vaillantcourt, Julie Chu, Sami Jo Small, Tessa Bonhomme and Jennifer Botterill.

At a designated time during the evening, game spectators will be invited onto the ice for another highlight: Skate With The Champions. For a $5 donation per person, this will be your chance to mix and mingle, say hello to players, get your autographs, and encourage your kids to feel like little Olympians too. Door prizes and other surprises are in store including a Silent Auction fundraiser with several must-have items.

No tickets required. Entrance to the game and festivities is free when accompanied with a donation to the Canadian National Institute For The Blind. For game spectators with a visual impairment, a special seating section has been set up to provide live and up-close, play-by-play. The Master Card Centre is located at 400 Kipling Avenue in Toronto.
