Habs coming to town this fall

The website of the Montreal Canadiens says:

Hockey game with Canadiens Alumni
For more than 40 years, Canadiens Alumni have been traveling throughout Quebec and the rest of Canada to make your hockey dreams come true.

Pit your local team against the Canadiens Alumni as a fundraiser for your organism or organisation.

Each year, the Canadiens Alumni help raise over $1.5 million for grass-root and community causes. 

As reported by Sherri Solomko in the July 20th, 2015, Unity Wilkie Press-Herald, the Montreal Canadien alumni team is coming to UNITY, SK.

They will be here November 27 to play a team from town. Who will be representing Unity is yet to be determined – the opposition team will be paint for the privilege to play against the Habs alumni. Details are being hammered out on how the selection process will work and organizers promise to let people know as soon as the details are available.

Delta Co-op and the Unity Credit Union have already come on board as major sponsors for the local event. Net proceeds are earmarked for the food bank, the Unity Community Resource Centre and at least one other organization yet to be determined.

The Canadien alumni team selected three locations in Saskatchewan to take their game to, Unity, La Ronge and Yorkton.

The Habs’ roster includes recently retired players as well as fan favourites from the past.

There is also a unique “thrill of a lifetime” opportunity for two Habs fans as they can pay to have the privilege to actually play with the Canadiens, even receiving their own jersey with their name on the back and having the opportunity at intermission to have that jersey signed.

Watch for details around town and in this paper regarding updates on yet another exciting hockey event coming to Unity.
