The trade deadline has come and gone and Roberto Luongo is still a Vancouver Canuck. But before we watch the season unfold down the stretch and into head into the playoffs, there is one more important day coming up tomorrow, April 4th, as the Canucks hold their annual Canucks for Kids Fund Telethon during tomorrow’s game against the Edmonton Oilers.
CFKF Telethon raised more than $1.3 million during the 2011/12 NHL season, through phone/online donations and fundraising events throughout the year. The fund dedicates resources to assist charities which support children’s health and wellness, foster the development of grassroots hockey, and facilitate and encourage education in British Columbia. Over its 27 year history, the Fund has raised more than $41 million for the children and families of our province.
This year we are excited that our own Bruce Ng will be representing CanucksCorner.com and taking pregame phone pledges during the telethon. If you get to speak with Bruce, we’re sure his kind, enthusiastic voice will convince you to make a big donation!
In addition to possibly getting to talk to Bruce there are other great incentives if you make a donation to the cause:
- Enter by Midnight April 4th, 2013 and you could win a 2013 Chevrolet Trax LTZ.
- Donate $150 or more and receive both “Century of Hockey” and “Milestone Memory” photographs.
- Donate $100 and receive an exclusive 8″ x 10″ photograph of a “Century of Hockey”.
You can make an online donation by clicking here, or call in your donation tomorrow night during the game at Toll Free at 1.85.KIDSFUND (1-855-437-3863).
Help the kids if you can, it’s a really great cause!
