The Hockey Canada Foundation (HCF) and Team Canada Alumni Association (TCAA) did their part to aid Canada’s national teams on their road to PyeongChang, donating a portion of the funds raised at the 2017 TCAA Charity Golf Tournament to players who wore the Maple Leaf on the biggest stage in sports.

Held Oct. 5, 2017 at the Lakeside Golf Club in Chestermere, Alta., the eighth annual TCAA tournament included 160 golfers – 30 of whom were alumni. In all, close to $23,000 was raised.

With the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games just a few months away, the HCF and TCAA donated $20,000 to Korea-bound athletes; each of the 23 members of Canada’s Women’s Olympic Team and each of the 17 members of Canada’s Paralympic Hockey Team received $500 apiece.

“The players that represent Canada at the Olympics and Paralympics dedicate themselves fully to chasing their dreams,” said Donna Iampieri, executive director of the HCF. “The Hockey Canada Foundation, along with the Team Canada Alumni Association, were proud to play a small role in supporting them.”

Canada’s women’s and para teams both brought home silver medals from PyeongChang.

The remaining $2,679.55 from the TCAA tournament was well-spent – it was donated to Comrie’s Sports Equipment Bank, which gathers, recycles and redistributes equipment at no cost to those kids who would otherwise be denied the opportunity to participate.
