Canadiens vs. Lincolns Fundraiser Alumni Game set to go
By Stewart Grant
If you are a Lincolns fan, a Habs fan, or just a hockey fan in general, the PRC is the place to be this Friday night.
“A Celebration of Hockey on Friday will not only be a memorable night for fans of all ages, but it is a fundraising opportunity to give us the financial backing needed to grow next season,” said Lincolns Team President Brandon Boyd who spoke with the Independent this week. “With a strong returning core expected, we are excited to restore a winning environment in St. Marys. So buy a ticket, enjoy a great night out, and help the Lincolns climb the ladder of the GOJHL.”
The evening begins at 5:00 p.m. for VIP ticketholders who have access to the Alumni Game “meet-and-greet” which runs in the End Zone until 6:00 p.m. A limited number of VIP tickets, at a cost of $75, are still available for purchase this week at the St. Marys Independent Newspaper office at 36 Water Street South. VIP guests are asked to limit their souvenir items for signature to two per person.
Regular admission tickets are also available for $25 and are available at the Independent, Dunny’s Source for Sports, and PRC Guest Services. Tickets will also be available at the door on game night. Ticketholders will want to find their seats by 6:30 p.m. to take in the pre-game warmups, player introductions, national anthem and ceremonial puck drop.
Puck drop for the Montreal Canadiens vs. St. Marys Lincolns Alumni Game will take place at 7:00 p.m. A full roster of players, coaches and officials appears on the right-hand side of this page. Free game-day programs will also be available at the door.
Prior to and during the game, the Rotary Club of St. Marys will be on hand to administer what will surely be the largest 50/50 draw of the Lincolns hockey season.
Following an entertaining hockey game in the Rock Rink, the action moves over the Community Centre portion of the PRC for drinks, a fundraiser auction, and live music from Devito & Schwartz. Donated auction items include autographed NHL jerseys, various NHL prints, Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings tickets, a golf package to St. Marys Golf & Country Club, a bottle of Chatenauneuf-du-pape, and more.
Looking forward to seeing a huge supportive crowd on Friday night!
