The Brockville Winter Classic organizing committee held a wrap-up celebration last evening at the Keystorm Pub. It was announced that this year's event - which featured the New York Rangers Alumni squaring off against the local Canadian Tire All-Stars raised $34,821! This money will go towards additional improvements at Rotary Park. As well, Thelma Spicer was awarded Volunteer of the Year. The award was presented by the 2017 award winner Joe Boisvenue.
Two other important announcements were made last evening:
1 - For the next few years, employees at Procter & Gamble will be stepping up to help with the Rotary Park fundraising efforts with the goal to leave a lasting legacy on our City.
2 - The Brockville Winter Classic is a six year project that features an Original Six Alumni team each year. So far, we've had the Montreal Canadiens Alumni, Boston Bruins Alumni & this year, the New York Rangers Alumni. Next year our guests will be the Chicago Blackhawks alumni (yippee!) Next years Brockville Winter Classic Weekend will take place on Family Day Weekend in February
