(Greater Sudbury, ON) The Sudbury Wolves are pleased to announce that they will be hosting their first ever St. Patrick’s Day themed game at the Sudbury Arena on Tuesday March 17th when they host the North Bay Battalion at 7:05pm. The Wolves will wear St. Patrick’s Day themed jerseys which will be auctioned off in support of Ten Rainbows Children’s Foundation. The jerseys will be auctioned off in two ways; a number of them will be auctioned off throughout the game with a silent auction, while select jerseys available online at auction.chl.ca until March 21st at 7:00pm.
“As the regular season is coming to a close, we are excited to unveil our fourth and final special themed jersey for 2019-20 season,” said Miranda Swain-Boivin, SWSE Marketing Manager. “Through our jersey games this year, we were able to help a number of different charities including the Children’s Wish Foundation, HSN Foundation, Jumpstart and now Ten Rainbows Children’s Foundation where we have been able to help not only raise funds through the jersey auctions, but also to help these charities receive visibility and spread their messages in the community. It is very important for us as an organization to be able to give back to the community who supports us, game in and game out. We are very excited to work with Ten Rainbows on this initiative and to help the youth in our community.”
“The Ten Rainbows Children’s Foundation is very appreciative of the Sudbury Wolves for donating the proceeds from the St. Patrick’s Day jersey auction to help kids in our community,” said Kathy Marynuk. “Ten Rainbows is dedicated to helping Sudbury area children facing financial and medical needs. With the proceeds from this event we will be able to touch the lives of many more kids and their families and continue to support the well-being of children.”
Next Tuesday’s game is sponsored by Topper’s Pizza who has lots of exciting prizes and giveaways for fans. One lucky fan will walk away with free pizza for the year in their second intermission pizza eating contest. There will also be live entertainment on the MIC Queen Stage before the game and during intermissions and the Food and Beverage Team has green items available throughout the game including Green Beer.
Tuesday’s game marks the Wolves second last game of the regular season as the Wolves then wrap up the season on Friday March 20th when they host the Hamilton Bulldogs. Fans are reminded that they must use any outstanding redeemers and vouchers valid for the 2019-20 season during these two remaining games. Tickets are on-sale now at greatersudbury.ca/tickets and at the Sudbury Arena Box Office.
TEN RAINBOWS CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION
Ten Rainbows Children’s Foundation originated with a group of friends who shared a common desire to help children in need. Early fundraising efforts included organizing social events for friends and work colleagues, and various other activities such as residential moves and Spring yard clean-up for friends, relatives and workplace associates, from which the modest proceeds were then donated to various child focused community agencies such as the Children’s Aid Society. As the frequency and scope of our activities expanded and the monetary proceeds grew, we came to realize the potential to do more and so, in 1993, Ten Rainbows Children’s Foundation was formally incorporated and registered with the Canadian Government as a bona fide not for profit charity. Over the years we have developed relationships with many of the local social agencies who have become valuable referral sources for families and children in need.
