Kinsmen Club of North Bay
The Kinsmen Club of North Bay is pleased to announce that it has joined other Kin Canada clubs across the nation in selling an exclusive hockey book that will benefit local community projects and cystic fibrosis research.
Greatest Moments in Canada Hockey History is a soft cover commemorative book that recounts Canada’s 50 all-time greatest hockey games and its unforgettable heroes throughout the country’s storied hockey history in NHL, junior’s, women’s and Olympic competition. The Kinsmen Club of North Bay hopes to sell the 144-page book to members of the community over the next few months.
"With the purchase of this book, you are helping Kin Canada raise funds for community projects and to fund research and treatment programs for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CCFF),” says Mike Croghan, chair of the Kin-CCFF Liaison Committee.
He adds, “This is your opportunity to make a difference in someone else's life by providing hope for individuals affected with cystic fibrosis who thought they might never have a second chance. With every book purchased, you're helping Kin Canada find a cure for this fatal disease and on behalf of all people with cystic fibrosis, thank you for your generous support!”
Walter Gretzky, who is supporting the Association’s fundraising project, wrote the book’s foreword.
He writes, “By purchasing this exciting, historical account of Canada’s most beloved sport, you are helping Kin Canada support two extremely worthwhile endeavours: local community projects and Kin Canada’s National Charity – the fight against cystic fibrosis (CF).”
The book retails for $20 and is available exclusively at Canadian Tire on McKeown Avenue in North Bay. Profits from the sale of this book benefit cystic fibrosis research and other charities supported by the Kinsmen Club of North Bay.
To buy a copy of the book, please contact Mitch Belanger at (705)474-2000.
