TORONTO, Aug. 15, 2016 /CNW/ - Join Brian Burke, and a bench full of NHL celebrities for an evening under the stars to end youth bullying. For the 3rd year in a row the Canadian Safe School Network is thrilled to welcome you to the Night For Change.
Hosted by Ultimate Leafs Fan Mike Wilson and his partner Debra Thuet, the 3rd annual event brings even more excitement and NHL guests than last year! The night begins with our unforgettable "blue carpet." Guests are immersed in the action as they walk in next to some of the biggest names in the NHL. Inside, guests can peruse the largest collection of hockey memorabilia outside the hockey hall of fame. We're serving up drinks and gourmet BBQ from some of Toronto's best restaurants, while Canadian country musician Tim Hicks performs. Throughout the night, we'll auction off unbelievable items including trips and exclusive hockey opportunities. The highlight of the night is an intimate hot-stove panel with NHL alumni. We're excited to welcome Phil Esposito, Doug Gilmour, Rick Vaive, Dennis Maruk and more!
This year, we just couldn't fit all the fun in one evening. So we're having lunch too! We've invited VIP ticket holders to get out of the office and sit down with Number Four, in an intimate meet and greet! Ultimate Leafs Fan, Mike Wilson hosts Bobby Orr and Brian Burke in an exclusive Q & A at noon.
The Canadian Safe School Network (CSSN) is a national, not-for-profit, registered charitable organization with a mandate to reduce youth violence and make our schools and communities safer. Because of the generosity of all of our partners and donors we will be able to successfully launch and implement 4 new programs this year, further impacting youth and creating a positive environment for them to learn and grow.
