The Mike Keane Celebrity Hockey Classic, held this year on February 17 and 18, 2016 at MTS Iceplex, provides a unique experience for fundraisers and fans to get up close with NHL greats, all in support of the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation and Continuity Care.
The Mike Keane Charity Classic kicks off with a Draft Day Experience where each team will choose an NHL superstar to play on their team. Draft positions will be determined by the total dollars raised by each team. After an evening spent getting to know their celebrity teammate, teams will hit the ice on February 18th at the MTS Iceplex. The event will end with the top fundraising team playing against the NHL Greats. Proceeds from the event will be split between the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation and Continuity Care.
“This tournament allows everyday hockey enthusiasts to team up with former NHL Greats to play hockey and raise funds for charities in Manitoba,” says Dwayne Green, Executive Director, Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation. “We are extremely grateful to be a part of such a unique event that has so many local ties to Winnipeg.”
