Media Advisory: Giant Tiger and the Ottawa 67's-Both Winning Teams!

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 8, 2012) - Giant Tiger is indeed a great fan of the Ottawa 67's. The 67's are one of Canada's top Canadian Hockey League teams. Led by scoring leader Tyler Toffoli, Ottawa Senators' draft pick Shane Prince and World Junior All-Star goalie Petr Mrazek, they have already clinched first place in the Eastern Division of the Ontario Hockey League and are in a tight race for the Eastern Conference championship. This could be the year they go all the way to the Memorial Cup.

Giant Tiger has been a proud supporter of the Ottawa 67's for 12 years now and this year is no different as we sponsor their game on Sunday, March 11 at the Ottawa Civic Centre. The 67's will host the Mississauga St-Michael's Majors at 2:00 pm.

Join us to experience the greatest Canadian pass-time at its best and fun for the whole family! Your child may be selected to participate in our fun intermission game called "Rolling For Dollars". Participants will receive a $50, $75 and $100 gift card depending on how many coupons they can collect by rolling around the tarp on the ice surface. Fifteen Giant Tiger Gift Cards valued at $50 each will also be drawn in a random fashion throughout the duration of the game. You can also "high-five" the Giant Tiger Mascot and catch one of the 100 yellow t-shirts he'll be tossing into the audience. Don't miss the Opening Ceremonies where all will begin with a cheque presentation from Giant Tiger to TROtt (Therapeutic Riding Association of Ottawa-Carleton) in the amount of $190,163.00.
