    TORONTO, Sept. 9 /CNW/ - The NHL Alumni Association's 7th Annual Gala
Dinner presented by Scotiabank takes place September 11th at the Westin
Harbour Castle in downtown Toronto starting at 6 p.m. At the event the NHL
Alumni will be celebrating "Man of the Year" Bobby Hull while also raising

    The NHL Alumni Association hosts its inaugural "Grapes with the Greats"
Wine Tasting Event September 10th at 6 p.m. at the Hockey Hall of Fame in
Toronto to launch the NHL Alumni Signature Wine Series(TM). The series
includes 12 bottles of wine bearing likenesses of some of hockey's legendary
players. Proceeds from the sale of the wine will support various charities,
including favourite causes of the featured alumni as well as the NHL Alumni
Association's Hockey's Greatest Family fund, which supports former players in
need. Attendees at this event include hockey greats such as Ted Lindsay, Clark
Gillies and Darryl Sittler.
    "The NHL Alumni Signature Wine Series(TM) is an exciting new program that
has come out of a collaboration of the NHL Alumni Association, Ironstone
Vineyards, Artemis Sports Group and of course, some of our greatest alumni,"
says Mark Napier, NHL Alumni Association Executive Director and former NHL
hockey player. "As well as supporting our Alumni Association charity, a
portion of the proceeds will go to 11 different charities chosen by the
players, so it's all for a great cause." Mr. Napier pointed out that Doug
Gilmour, Darryl Sittler and Wendel Clark wines are expected to be available
through the LCBO after September 27. More information is available at
