Regina Pats to Suit Up with Don Cherry in February

Regina Pats to Suit Up with Don Cherry in February

January 18, 2019

The Regina Pats will be looking a little snazzier than usual during a home game in February as the WHL Suits Up with Don Cherry to Promote Organ Donation.

For the second season in a row, RE/MAX Western Canada is partnering with the WHL to raise funds and awareness for the Kidney Foundation of Canada.

The Foundation is a cause near and dear to Cherry and his family. Tim, Cherry’s son, required a kidney transplant from his sister Cindy.

“Creating awareness surrounding the importance of organ donation in Canada is both close to my heart and paramount to helping people across this beautiful country of ours,” Cindy told the WHL. “It makes you wonder why everyone hasn’t registered to be an organ donor like I have. I’m grateful to both the Western Hockey League and RE/MAX for coming together on this important initiative in support of the Kidney Foundation of Canada.”

From January until March, all 17 Canadian-based teams in the WHL will host a home game with themes and special promotions for fans in attendance including 1,000 Don Cherry bobbleheads, and limited-edition Don Cherry trading cards provided by Upper Deck.

Each team will also wear a special edition Don Cherry-themed jersey, which fans will have a chance to bid on. Along with game-worn jerseys, fans will also have the chance to bid on one jersey autographed by Don Cherry in each WHL market with 100 per cent of the proceeds going towards the Foundation.

During the 2017-18 season, Canadian-based WHL clubs rallied together with RE/MAX and raised over $265,500; the largest public fundraising campaign in the history of the Foundation.

“Thanks to RE/MAX, the WHL and all its fans, the number of transplants last year increased by 13 per cent,” Don Cherry said. “Let’s keep this momentum going by signing your donor card and talking to your family. It only makes sense.”

The Pats host the Edmonton Oil Kings for Don Cherry night on Feb. 15 at 7:00 p.m.
