Tickets are now on sale for a growing and much-loved Ottawa tradition that supports Canadian soldiers in need, and their families.
On June 19, the Ottawa-based media will take on the Canadian military General Officers and Flag Officers in the third instalment of what has become a fierce on-ice competition in the name of charity.
This summer rematch follows two previous games, both of which left the Esprit de Corps Commandos victorious, and Chief of Defence Staff, Tom Lawson’s, team of top generals increasingly eager to bag a win.
But the real winner of this series of fundraising games has been the Military Family Resource Centre for the National Capital Region, which provides a myriad of unique services for the 11,000 military members, 8,000 spouses, and 9,000 children living in the Ottawa area.
In total, proceeds from these hockey games have raised more than $7,500 for the local organization.
Tickets are $10 and come with a free smoked meat sandwich from Dunn's famous deli on Elgin St. as well as a soft drink. Beer will be on sale in the stands, with part of the proceeds going to fundraising efforts.
Surprise celebrity guests will be present, and there will be raffles for incredible prizes from our sponsors.
