TORONTO, Nov. 30, 2015 /CNW/ - Peoples Jewellers, Canada's number-one diamond store and the Official Jeweller of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and Citizen Watch Canada, Official Watch of the Toronto Maple Leafs, have come together to bring guests an exclusive opportunity to meet Maple Leafs captain, Dion Phaneuf, a Citizen brand ambassador. This special event will take place on Monday, December 7th from 6:30 – 8:00 PM at the Peoples Jewellers store located within the Toronto Eaton Centre at 220 Yonge Street Toronto, Ontario M5B 2H1.
In addition to a meet and greet with the team's captain and the opportunity to get a personalized autograph, guests will enjoy an appearance by Leafs mascot Carlton the Bear and members of the Toronto Maple Leafs Blue Crew. Guests will also have an opportunity to enter for the chance to win great prizes, including official Maple Leafs merchandise and tickets and beautiful jewellery from Peoples.
Peoples Jewellers and the Toronto Maple Leafs announced a multi-year partnership at the beginning of the 2015-2016 NHL season. In addition to recognizing Peoples Jewellers as the Official Jeweller of the Maple Leafs, the three-year partnership will feature exciting fan experiences, both in-store and in-arena. A highlight of the partnership is the "Ultimate Penalty Kill" promotion, which will give one Leafs fan at each home game the opportunity to win jewellery from Peoples Jewellers should the Leafs score a short-handed goal during a penalty kill.
Leveraging the relationship with brand ambassador Dion Phaneuf, Citizen Watch Canada became the Official Watch of the Toronto Maple Leafs during the 2012-2013 season. The importance of this can be found in the message both Citizen Watch Canada and Dion represent – the need to always strive to be better. As Captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Dion's dedication and passion not only to the sport of hockey, but also to his teammates and community is evident both on and off the ice. Citizen Watch Canada portrays this same passion with its Community MVP Program where each month, in partnership with the Toronto Maple Leafs, the company recognizes a member of the community for outstanding achievements.
