RED DEER, AB, April 13, 2016 /CNW/ - Proud to be a Local Pillar Partner sponsor of the 2016 MasterCard Memorial Cup, Collins Barrow is celebrating junior hockey challengers, past and present. The audit, tax and advisory network has teamed up with three-time Memorial Cup winner and former NHL player, Darcy Tucker, to honour the fortitude and determination that leads to success both on and off the ice.
One of only four players in the history of junior hockey to win the Memorial Cup three times, Tucker went on to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs and three other NHL teams.
Supporting Collins Barrow's 'Be A Challenger' campaign, Tucker will attend the MasterCard Memorial Cup finals with them in Red Deer. The campaign celebrates the values and accomplishments of junior hockey players in teams across Canada, as well as giving back to the community by partnering with Ronald McDonald House Charities® Central Alberta.
Together, the charity and Collins Barrow will send one lucky family to the final Memorial Cup game on May 29, 2016. They will also host a special meet and greet with Tucker and families at Ronald McDonald House® Central Alberta in Red Deer.
"We have a long history of supporting our community, both through the power of sport and by partnering with amazing charities," said Rob Kolton, Collins Barrow National Marketing Liaison. "These junior hockey players and courageous families exude the challenger mindset we hold dear at Collins Barrow – a value system we also exemplify through the exceptional services we offer clients."
"I am proud to partner with Collins Barrow honouring those who push limits to achieve challenger status – whether they're junior hockey players, families or philanthropists," said Tucker. "I also really look forward to going back to the Memorial Cup for the first time since my team won in 1995. It feels like going home."
The 'Be A Challenger' campaign will also include CHL playoff ticket giveaways to lucky winners on social media and special challenger-themed videos.
