Description

Our Call To Arms fundraiser dinner will be an exciting evening filled with music, food, door prizes, a silent auction and great people including past & current National Team athletes. It will be hosted on July 15th, 2017 at the Mahony & Sons Irish pub, located on UBC Campus.

Please join us buy purchasing a ticket, which are $40/person (All ages welcome!). Included in this ticket is an entrée, a side, a drink, and a ticket for some awesome door prizes! Table reservations can be made available - if you would like to do so contact one of the members of the WNT and they will ensure this is arranged.

All the proceeds from the evening will go directly to the Women's National Team program.


Your Women’s National Field Hockey team needs YOU!!

Why? Well...

Despite our climbing World Ranking and growing competitiveness and experience, in January of this year we lost approximately $300,000 of government funding from Own the Podium. As a result, we athletes and our coaches have taken on the daunting task of replacing this capital through sponsorship and fundraising.

The alternative to maintain the Woman's Canadian National Program is for the athletes to pay levies. As all of the players on the Women's National team are full-time Athletes, many do not have the financial capability to remain with the progam if fund raising is unsuccessful and they are required to cover these significant program costs, on top of their personal costs. These program costs include a multitude of things, such as coach and staff salaries, faciltiy and field time, travel, and competition. We are currently preparing for the 2017 PanAm Cup, 2018 Commonwealth Games and qualifying for the 2020 Olympic Games.

As we rally to raise funds, we are hopeful that people like YOU will help us along our journey!

If you cannot attend and still would like to support us tax deductible donations can be made to our team here: https://canadianolympicfoundation.akaraisin.com/Donation/Event/DonationInfo.aspx?seid=14777&mid=48
