Game on! Habs Alumni to play at Kahnawake Sports Complex for fundraiser


The Sports & Recreation Unit of the Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) is pleased to announce that the Montreal Canadiens Alumni Tour (presented by Canadian Tire) is coming to the Kahnawà:ke Sports Complex on Friday, 6 Enníska/February 2015.

A team consisting of former Habs players will take on a team of Kahnawà:ke all-stars in a charity game to raise funds for a new children’s park to be named in honor of the late Orville Standup. Among the players confirmed is John Chabot (Algonquin, Kitigan Zibi), who played for the Canadiens from 1983 to 1985 and tallied 50 points in 66 games.

The location of the park is yet to be finalized but the intent is for it to be located near the outdoor rink next to the old K103 Building.

“We’re very excited to bring the Canadiens Alumni team to Kahnawà:ke,” said Chief Carl Horn, who is organizing the event and is one of the MCK Chiefs holding the Sports & Recreation portfolio. “The Canadiens are the most famous hockey franchise in the world and there are plenty of Habs fans right here in town!”

Tickets will be going on sale shortly, in time for Christmas. It is estimated that a new park will cost approximately $30,000 to $40,000. All funds raised at this event will go toward the project.

“We’d like to thank the sponsors who came forward immediately to help make this a reality,” said Chief Horn. “Morris Mohawk, OCR Gas Bar and Rainbow Distribution have joined as major sponsors, along with Central Station Gas and John & Donna McComber. This ensures that the associated costs for putting on the event are covered. All we’ll need to do is fill the arena and raise some money for a worthy cause.”

“There are still plenty of sponsorship opportunities available,” he concluded. “The more involvement we have from the community, the easier it will be to reach our goal.”
