29 Oct Hockey Helps The Homeless: Advanced Parking raised more than $103,000 for the last 5 years!
HHTH (Hockey Helps the Homeless) leverages Canada’s affinity for hockey to raise awareness and financial support for the homeless through education, fundraising, and by partnering with solutions-based local homeless support agencies.
In 1996, Hockey Helps the Homeless (HHTH) was born from a simple idea – use hockey to help Toronto’s most needy. A group in Toronto used donated ice time at then Maple Leaf Gardens to host a charity hockey Tournament for friends and colleagues. The inaugural Tournament then called Hockey for the Homeless would raise just over $8,000.
In 2008, HHTH expanded to Calgary, AB, Vancouver, BC and the Nation’s Capital, Ottawa, ON. The Vancouver Tournament is the largest in terms of number of teams, gross and net revenue to the charity.
Last year, the Vancouver event raised more than $450,000 which has been shared across ten agencies in the Vancouver area to assist the many homeless people in Vancouver including youth and adults alike. Vancouver’s contribution last year added and contributed to a new national fundraising record.
Advanced Parking team has played in this tournament for the past five years. In those five years, our team and partners has raised over $103,000 putting us in the top five fundraising teams twice. It is a cause that we care deeply for. Our team has taken that passion to placing first in the tournament twice.
The up-coming Tournament is Friday, November 23rd at UBC Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre.
