Montreal Canadien Alumni Charity Hockey Game CANCELLED
“It is with considerable regret that we inform our donors, sponsors, supporters, participants and volunteers that our Montreal Canadiens Alumni game scheduled for this Sunday, March 15 at the Casman Centre has been cancelled.
The Fort McMurray Boys and Girls Club has been paying close attention to the global outbreak of coronavirus COVID-19, and we have been taking precautions based on the recommendations from federal and provincial governments. Effective March 12, the Alberta government has asked organizers to cancel any events that have more than 250 attendees, including large sporting events, conferences, and community events.
All funds received for the Montreal Canadiens Alumni Hockey Tour – Fort McMurray, AB, including non-receipted donations and sponsorship’s, will be returned to our supporters and participants in a timely manner. We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to the members of the public who have purchased tickets for this event in support of our Club—tickets purchased for the game will also be refunded as a result of the cancellation. We will have more information on this in the coming days, so please check our Facebook for the latest updates.
We are very disappointed by the news and the unfortunate financial loss, but as always, the safety and well-being of the children, youth, and families in Fort McMurray is our first priority. We are grateful to everyone who has generously supported our Boys and Girls Club through this event.”
