5th Annual Kids Hockey Advancement Society's Fundraising Golf Tournament


Tucker Hockey is proud to support the Kids Hockey Advancement Society's 5th Annual Fundraising Golf Tournament, as the Event Sponsor. We fully endorse the Society as it endeavors to raise funds for such a great cause. Personally, I am committed as well as other dedicated team members to contribute the volunteer time and effort as required to ensure the continuing success of the Society.

We look forward with great anticipation to this year's tournament, scheduled for Wednesday September 12th, 2012, at the Inglewood Golf and Curling Club.

The Kids Hockey Advancement Society was incorporated to provide an opportunity for children to play, to develop their skating and hockey skills and to participate in organized hockey - the nation's greatest sport.

The benefit to these children in terms of physical fitness, mental health and well being and social development are significant and well- documented. The benefits to society as these children mature into exemplary and responsible citizens are even more significant.

Thanks in large part to the enduring loyalty from a tight community of donors, the Kids Hockey Advancement Society has continued to see strong fundraising dollars come in and with the addition of new partners last year, we've been able to maintain a high bar that we set for ourselves, even with an economy still struggling to recover.

In July of 2010, the Society raised $15,000 to help children acquire hockey gear and register for organized hockey through KidSport of Calgary. An additional $1,700 was directly donated by adopting "Tuck" the Bear, a Hand Carved Wooden Bear that sits comfortably in KidSport Calgary's Corporate Office as their Mascot. He was introduced in 2010 and will continue to be adopted out each year, raising funds along the way!!

The goal in 2012 is to provide funds to KidSport of Calgary, while also personally funding individual children at the grassroots level in the community as well. The Society has once again set a high standard that we are committed to achieving, thus ensuring more deserving kids get the chance to participate in organized hockey.
