REMAX of Western Canada is a proud partner with the Western Hockey League (WHL) to present WHL Suits Up with Don Cherry to Promote Organ Donation. A series of events across WHL markets to promote the importance of organ donation and generate further support of The Kidney Foundation of Canada.
For the second season in a row, the Regina Pats hosted their Don Cherry night on Friday, February 15 at the Brandt Centre.
The Regina Pats sported their specially-designed Don Cherry jerseys during the match as they took on the Edmonton Oil Kings. The Pats topped the Oil Kings in a 4-0 victory.
REMAX Crown Real Estate not only helped raise money for the Kidney Foundation during the Pats game but also donated 20 tickets to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Regina and Area program for children to enjoy the event.
A handful of lucky fans also won free pairs of tickets to the match through a Facebook giveaway.
Throughout the game, Don Cherry bobbleheads, beer koozies, and REMAX temporary tattoos were handed out to those in attendance.
At the conclusion of the game, fans were able to bid on the game-worn Don Cherry themed jerseys with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to a local chapter of the Kidney Foundation.
Once again, this event was a success. We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped raise funds for this amazing cause!
