Canadian Hockey Team Raises Money for Education Fund
Career Path : Education News
Hockey fans might recognize the Moose Jaw Warriors as the Saskatchewan-based junior hockey team in the Western Hockey League. Each year, the Warriors host the K+S Potash Canada Warriors Alumni Golf Tournament, in order to raise money for the Warriors Education Fund. The Warriors have recently announced that this year’s 6th annual tournament, which was held earlier this month, raised a whopping $100,048!
The Warriors Education Fund is designed to financially support and assist Moose Jaw Warriors Players who would like to pursue a post-secondary education after their junior hockey career. Says Tournament Committee Chair Todd Huson; “this event brings the business community, the Warriors, and their Alumni together to raise money for the Education Fund. As we are all aware not many of these kids play hockey passed this point in their lives, I think it’s only fitting that we can give something back to them for giving us years of great entertainment.”
The Western Hockey League is a leader in providing post-secondary scholarships in Western Canada, and the Warriors contribute $100,000 annually for their graduated players.
The K+S Potash Canada Warriors Alumni Golf Tournament has successfully raised approximately $400,000 to date.
