(Greater Sudbury, ON) – The Sudbury Wolves are pleased to announce that last season’s Health Sciences North Foundation game which took place on January 10th in support of the MRI Campaign raised $3,000 for the initiative. The money was raised from the silent and online auctions of the Wolves’ physician-themed jerseys as well as through t-shirt sales and ticket sales at the hospital.
“Last season we had the pleasure of working closely with the Health Sciences North Foundation on this special charity game and were able to help shine a light on a campaign that is going to benefit so many different people in Northeastern Ontario,” said Miranda Swain-Boivin, SWSE Marketing Manager. “When we were deciding which charity to partner with last year, selecting a charity that fulfilled the prerequisite of benefiting a large population of the City of Greater Sudbury and surrounding communities was very important for us to help give back to our community that helps support us each season.”
“We are thankful to the Sudbury Wolves for hosting the Physician Themed Jersey Day in support of Health Sciences North Foundation,” said Anthony Keating, President and Chief Development Officer, Foundations and Volunteer Groups at HSN. “It is inspiring to watch our community come together to support priority health care needs for people across northeastern Ontario. The themed jerseys were a fun addition to an exciting hockey game.”
The Physician-themed jerseys are one of four special themed jerseys that were planned for last season, with the Wolves also donning Superhero themed jerseys in November and Sudbury Five crossover jerseys in February. Unfortunately, the St. Patrick’s Day jersey game was put on hold due to the cancellation of the end of the season.
“We would like to thank the team at Health Science North Foundation for helping us make this a successful event and we are looking forward to working with them once again in the future,” added Miranda.
The Sudbury Wolves would like to thank all our fans that supported these events as well as to thank all the frontline health care workers for their tremendous efforts in fighting COVID-19.
