Show me the Money in support of Our Kids Count

91.5 CKPR is proud to support Show me the Money in support of Our Kids Count!

Historically both of Our Kids Count and the Kiwanis Club of Westfort have raffled off a Harley Davidson motorcycle for many years. It has been a great vehicle for us to raise funds and while sales have been for the most part profitable, they have varied from year to year and often have proven a difficult sell, given the unique nature of this great brand.
Well, all that is about to change. We are announcing our new draw which is a joint partnership between Our Kids Count and the Kiwanis Club of Westfort. It is the “Show Me The Money” draw where we will be giving away $100,000 in cash over a twelve month period. There will be 15,000 tickets available at $20.00 each. The prizes offered and the lower cost of the ticket should prove to make this an easy sale to prospective supporters of both of our organizations.
Draws will be held during the first Friday of every month starting January 2018 to December 2018. Tickets purchased up to the Monday of the draw week will be included in the monthly draw. All tickets pulled will go back into the drum after being announced and will be made available to win again, again and again.

Cash Prizes will be as follows:
July 6, 2018: $1,000 $500 $375
August 3, 2018: $1,000 $500 $375

91.5 CKPR is proud to support  the Easter Seals Thunder Bay Celebrity Hockey Classic

On Friday, October 26 hockey fans in Thunder Bay will have the opportunity to skate with NHL greats in the city’s 2nd annual Celebrity Hockey Classic in support of Easter Seals Ontario.

When asked about returned to Thunder Bay for the tournament, Wendel Clark, former Captain of the Toronto Maples Leafs, had this to say: “I truly enjoyed participating in the Easter Seals Celebrity hockey Classic last year in Thunder Bay and glad to say I will be there again….see you in October!”

The tournament kicks off the evening of Thursday, October 25 with an unforgettable Draft Party at Sleeping Giant Brewery, where each team will select a former NHL star to play on their team. Draft positions will be determined by the total dollars raised by each team. After an evening spent getting to know their celebrity teammate, teams will hit the ice on Friday, October 26 at the Thunder Bay Tournament Centre. Each team is guaranteed a minimum 3 games with VIP treatment before and after each game.

An All-Star game will occur at the end of the day with the top individual fundraisers from each team taking on the Celebrity All-Star Team in a thrilling game of hockey. Other Celebrity Hockey Classic tournaments taking place this year feature Eric Lindros in Whitby, Brad May in Halton, Rick Vaive in Waterloo, and events in York-Simcoe and Grey Bruce.

Each team must pay a registration fee of $1,500, plus a minimum of $400 per player in fundraising in order to qualify to play in the tournament.

Funds will help kids in Ontario with physical disabilities live more independently within their communities.

For over 95 years, Easter Seals has been providing support for children and youth with physical disabilities with programs including financial assistance to help purchase mobility equipment and communication devices, as well as fully accessible summer camp opportunities at its two properties, Camp Merrywood and Camp Woodeden.
