Well for once I have a few days notice on a Stanley Cup day. So if you are interested in seeing it or if you are interested in seeing Sean O'Donnell here is your chance.
The Stanley Cup will be visiting Kanata, Ontario this week and will be making an appearance on Friday at the Kanata Sports Club/Jack Charron Arena.
Here are some of the details:
Sean O'Donnell, Stanley Cup winner with the Mighty Ducks and former Kanata Valley Laser player, is bringing Lord Stanley's cup to the Kanata Sports Club! This is an adults-only, members-only hot seat. You must be a member to purchase and use a ticket. Due to anticipated demand, tickets will be sold IN ADVANCE and only 120 are available. Tickets are available for purchase at the Club at a cost of $10.00 per ticket, which includes lunch. You MUST have a ticket AND be on the membership list to attend and there will be NO tickets available at the door.
The Cup will move downstairs to the Jack Charron Arena slab after the Hot Seat - this event will be open to everyone, there is no admission charge, and food and refreshments will be available for purchase with all proceeds going to ROGERS HOUSE.
