              The Scotiabank Pro-Am is a three-day hockey experience for men
              and women, where each participating team of 11 to 17 players,
              plus one coach, will draft an NHL alumnus to play on their
              team. Teams must raise a minimum of $25,000 and draft positions
              will be determined by the total dollars raised by each team.
