In support of the Bourne Family and Friends Foundation (BF&FF), ourselves and Hockey Greats Fantasy Camp (HGFC) are teaming up to launch the Hockey Greats Charity Pool. What is a playoffs without a little pool action? Think of all twitter bragging you can do…especially when you beat out one of last years Bruins Stanley Cup winners. Yes, past NHLers like Mark Recchi are getting in on the action also, time for revenge! So enter NOW as it’s limited to 1500 entries.
Besides competing against other fans across the nation, participants will also go up against NHL Stanley Cup winning legends such as Mark Recchi, Brian Trottier, and Bob Bourne, to prove who knows playoff hockey best! Since this playoff fantasy hockey pool is created in Vancouver, the majority of participants will be local but we also expect them to be from across Canada. Entry into the pool is free but we highly encourage donations of at least $10 to the Bourne Family & Friends Foundation.
To support this great cause (more information on the BF&FF is below), donate here.
Prizes & Charity
The top prize is an all expenses-paid trip in July to the Hockey Greats Fantasy Camp. The four-day camp (July 18th-21st) in Kelowna, B.C. includes hockey, golf, dinner, house boating and wine tasting with Brian Trottier, among many other NHL legends. The prize is valued at $4000.
Former goaltender and current CBC reporter Kelly Hrudey recently talked about the Fantasy Camp on CBC:

All voluntary sponsor and participant donations go to the Bourne Family & Friends Foundation, founded by four-time Stanley Cup winner Bob Bourne. For the past four years, proceeds have gone to cancer and spinal cord disabilities. This year, proceeds are going towards the important development of accessible and affordable housing for the physically disabled. Funds will be used to build residences and also remodel pre-existing residences to make them more accessible for people who are physically disabled.
