Coach4food winners meet Ken HitchcockFriday, November 27, 2009 by: Chris Dawson
Kris McDevitt and Miranda Turcotte of North Bay were the winners of tickets to the Ottawa Senators-Columbus NHL game Thursday night, donated by Columbus Blue Jackets Head Coach Ken Hitchcock, to Tom Hedican's Coach4Food campaign. McDevitt, right, works for Cubeit Portable Storage North Bay, which donated the money for the tickets. Left to right are assistant coach Gary Agnew, Turcotte, Hitchcock and McDevitt.
"Meeting Hitchcock after the game was not part of the winning package, however the head coach has become a big supporter of Coach4Food and wanted to congratulate the winners," said Coach4Food Founder Tom Hedican.
Hitchcock also threw in two more tickets for Terri McGregar of Trapper City Paving, when he heard she did not win the tickets, but generously left her $750 in the pot for Coach4Food, which benefits the North Bay Food Bank.
Cubeit Portable Storage won the auction with $1,200. The auction was run by Moose FM in North Bay.
