Canucks for Kids Fund (CFKF) Telethon is back, and fans have the chance to win a huge prize by supporting an important cause.

The Vancouver Canucks will host the annual fundraising event when the Vegas Golden Knights visit Rogers Arena on Tuesday, March 21, though donations are currently being accepted online.

Fans can donate to CKCF online and donations received before midnight will be entered to win a brand-new 2023 Toyota Corolla Hybrid AWD. Donations can also be made by scanning the QR code during the broadcast.

Those wanting a special souvenir can donate $100 or more to receive a one-of-a-kind 8 x 10 photo from Kevin Bieksa’s retirement. For donations of $150 or more, fans will score both the Bieksa photo as well as a commemorative 8 x 10 photo of 2022 Hockey Hall Of Fame inductees Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, and Roberto Luongo.

CKCF Telethon is presented by TD, who also serves as the presenting sponsor of signature Canucks events and initiatives like the Vancouver Canucks Alumni Association and several community and theme nights.

The Canucks for Kids Foundation has granted more than $86 million over the past 36 years to charities that support children’s health and wellness, those that foster and develop grassroots hockey, and others that facilitate and encourage education throughout the province.

In addition to the telethon, fans can check out the NHL United by Hockey mobile museum, which is stopping in Vancouver on March 21, prior to the game. The museum is free to check out, and will be parked outside Rogers Arena on Pat Quinn Way from 3-7:30 pm.

The mobile museum includes an interactive broadcast booth, and is an opportunity to “showcase the impeccable work of hockey legends who have come from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds to highlight that Hockey is for Everyone.” Randip Janda, of Hockey Night Punjabi and Canucks broadcasts on Sportsnet 650, will also be there to meet fans from 6 pm to 6:30 pm.
