BREWER’S ROW & THE PRO AM 2019 TOURNAMENT
Brewer’s Row is proud to have entered a team to participate in the 2019 CAN Pro-Am Hockey Tournament, and have set a target fundraising goal of $20,000 which we hope to exceed. By reaching our goal, approximately 30 children/youth with autism will get the opportunity to enjoy the thrill of skating/hockey and the joy of camaraderie.
Our team will have players from each brewery (Twin Sails, Yellow Dog, Parkside & Moody Ales), as well as some friends from the community. Each player has an individual fundraising goal of $1000.
Brewer’s Row will be holding a few fun events over the next three months to auction off some amazing prizes, as well as holding a grand prize raffle for which four lucky individuals can win beer for a year! Stay tuned for more information about our upcoming events.
Twin Sails Brewing has four excited players committed to raising funds for this amazing event:
• JEFFERY NORGREN
• JOEL SHAW
• DAN COSTANTINO
• ERIC CLAASSEN
ABOUT CANUCKS FOR AUTISM & THE PRO-AM 2019 TOURNAMENT
Founded in 2008 by Vancouver Canucks Co-owners Paolo and Clara Aquilini, Canucks Autism Network (CAN) provides year-round sports and recreation programs for children, youth, young adults and families living with autism, while raising awareness and providing training in communities across British Columbia. Now in its 10th year, CAN is recognized as a provincial leader in the autism community, supporting over 4,000 individuals impacted by autism across the province.
The inaugural Canucks Autism Network (CAN) Pro-Am Hockey Tournament, presented by Modern Green Canada, is set to take place from January 25 to January 27, 2019, at the UBC Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre and Rogers Arena, home of the Vancouver Canucks. In partnership with the NHL Alumni Association and Vancouver Canucks Alumni Association, the tournament will bring together former NHL greats with amateur players in support of CAN and families living with autism in British Columbia.
Themed as the “Best of BC”, the tournament will feature a uniquely local spin on the classic pro-am format, as each team will include a member of the NHL Alumni who was either born in BC or has competed for the Vancouver Canucks.
CAN Pro-Am teams will have the opportunity to select NHL Alumni in the order of their fundraising ranking on Draft Night at The Imperial in Vancouver.
Funds raised from the 2019 CAN Pro-Am Hockey Tournament will support the delivery of CAN’s sports and recreation programs for children, youth and young adults with autism. An estimated 1 in 66 Canadian children is diagnosed with autism and over 16,000 are impacted in BC alone.
