100th Memorial Cup

The Royal Canadian Legion proud to support 100th Memorial Cup

May 18, 2018

It’s a milestone year for the 2018 MasterCard Memorial Cup, and the Legion is once again a strong supporter of the event being held from May 18-27 in Regina.

The hockey tournament brings together elements also of great importance to the Legion: friendship, community, sport and Remembrance.

Saskatchewan Command’s Provincial President Lorne Varga was invited to take part in the first puck drop and the Legion will have a presence throughout the tournament. The Canadian Hockey League is holding an online auction with proceeds going to the Legion’s Poppy Trust Fund. Military-themed commemorative jerseys worn during the tournament will be up for grabs and funds raised will help support our Veterans.

“We are proud to be part of this special event,” says Flannigan.

Flannigan and Saskatchewan Command Executive Director Chad Wagner will both take part in related on-air interviews during the week on Sportsnet radio.
