The CJAY 92 radio legend explains how he won Saturday's Women’s Worlds 50/50, supporting women's hockey initiatives in Alberta.
David played a little bit of hockey growing up, but loves watching the game at every level – minor, junior and, of course, our national teams. Get to know one of our great winners, who are supporting women’s hockey initiatives in Alberta!
I do believe girls and women should get the opportunity to play and it means the world to them. However, it is a shame that many young girls do not get the opportunity, with not all areas and small towns having enough girls to make teams or make up leagues of their own.
I was a billet home for the Whitecourt Wolverines Junior A hockey team for eight years. Something I would recommend any family do if you are able, as it’s a very important part of many hockey organizations. I cannot stress it enough, [billet families are] key to the survival of many hockey organizations, and without them many teams would fail. But the best side of it is all the young men and women and their families you meet and become lifelong friends with.
Nothing very exciting: pay off a couple bills, put a little away towards retirement and maybe a new summer car.
Riane grew up surrounded by hockey, from playing the sport herself to regularly watching her brother and father play the game. Get to know one of our great winners, who are supporting women’s hockey initiatives in Alberta!
My husband and I have been contributing towards the IIHF World Junior Championship for many years. With the IIHF Women's World Championship in our hometown of Calgary this year, there was a greater connection to be able to support hockey in Alberta and women within the sport.
As a woman that grew up in sports since the age of three, the ability to participate in organized sport for young women and girls is absolutely everything. I know I would not be who I am today, both physically and mentally, if it weren't for sport. Being able to invest back into our own communities for more hockey experiences across Alberta will change many lives forever.
Putting the money away is the smart choice, but spending the money on ticket packages for future IIHF championships sounds like a better choice!
For the first time in World Juniors history the 50/50 draw has gone online, allowing fans across Alberta an opportunity to win big while leaving a substantial financial legacy for grassroots hockey across the province.
Meet the Albertans who have claimed the jackpots!
December 27 – Shari Mack ($241,850)
It might have been Shari’s name on the ticket, but the biggest jackpot to date is being shared between eight front-line health-care workers from the Lloydminster Hospital.
The group of women, who work in the maternity unit, are strong supporters of the Alberta hockey community and most have children who play minor hockey. After what was a long and stressful year due to COVID-19, Shari says they feel extremely blessed to have had the winning ticket.
To hear from the group, watch below.
