Minor Hockey Fundraising Program
The Vancouver Giants are proud to be in partnership with the various Minor Hockey Associations throughout the Lower Mainland and beyond. From South Delta to Squamish, from Aldergrove to West Vancouver, the Giants Minor Hockey Program continues to grow and improve every year.
Together, we have developed a comprehensive fundraising program that allows each participating Association to host a Giants home game during the season. In hosting a game, the Association raises money by selling 50/50 tickets and game programs, as well as game tickets in advance of their night. And not only does each Association get to raise money, they also get to have some fun once their work is over. Each Association gets to have their initiation-level players scrimmage in an intermission game and chooses one lucky player to take part in the pre-game skate as the “Seventh Man”.
Giants Majority Owner Ron Toigo is proud of the results thus far. “Right from day one I wanted to make sure we built a program that would benefit as many local minor hockey players as possible. As a former hockey dad and coach myself, I know the importance of fundraising and understand the benefits that it brings. As an organization, we feel this is the best possible way to give back to our community and aid in the development of the future WHL stars.”
Since 2001, the Giants Minor Hockey Fundraising Program has helped lower mainland minor hockey associations raise almost $3,000,000!
Each year, in partnership with Tim Hortons, the Giants welcome over 60 initiation level hockey teams to the Langley Events Centre for a day of celebrating hockey. For many, this is their very first ‘tournament’, and it’s totally free for teams to join. Here are just a few highlights of the day:
- Giants players stand in as coaches on each team
- Teams get a complimentary team photo
- Hot Chocolate, Timbits and activities are offered all day in the LEC Banquet Hall
