Red Deer, Alberta – March 2, 2018 – United Way Central Alberta is excited to announce Chucka-Puck night in Red Deer, presented by TBS Hockey (a Division of TBS Sports), and hosted by the Red Deer Rebels.
Friday’s game is Central Alberta United Way’s 2nd annual Chuck-a-Puck event. Fans are offered the opportunity to purchase soft pucks to throw at targets on the ice for a chance to win one of three prize packages. The support of this event and prize sponsors ensures that money raised for United Way can be put back into programs that create transformative and lasting community impact in Central Alberta.
“Sports fans just love throwing things on the ice – especially, but not exclusively, kids,” explained Tom Bast, owner and CEO of TBS Sports. “The Chuck-a-Puck initiative is a great way to bring together sports fans in support of a good cause as well as educate our younger hockey enthusiasts about the importance of giving back to their community.”
“Hockey is all about winning by supporting the success of others on the team,” explained Dean Williams, VP Marketing and Sales for the Red Deer Rebels. “The same principle applies to ensuring the success of our family, friends and neighbours. We all win when the community is strong. The Chuck-a-Puck event is a fun way for that team spirit to expand beyond the rink.”
In addition to the support of TBS Hockey and the Red Deer Rebels, many others in the business community supported Chuck-a-Puck by donating products and services for the three prize packages. United Way would like to acknowledge and thank all those who participated in making this event a success: Blue Sage Catering, Browns Social House, Collicutt Centre, Earls, Jump 360, and Telus.
