Ticket Applications Being Accepted for Popular Youth Program

September 11, 2019 - Western Hockey League (WHL) - Brandon Wheat Kings News Release

Brandon, MB. - A popular Brandon Wheat Kings Community Outreach Program is returning for the 2019-20 Western Hockey League season.

One day after announcing the return of the TD Read to Succeed program, the WHL club, in association with six participating corporate partners, is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for its 2019-20 "Corporate Good Guy" program.

The idea of the program is for area businesses and organizations to donate Wheat Kings' youth tickets to local charities and youth groups, so that less fortunate children throughout western Manitoba can also share in the experience of a "Live" WHL game at Westoba Place.

"Thanks to the Corporate Good Guy program and its presenting sponsors, the hockey club is given the opportunity to give back to western Manitoba," says Wheat Kings director of business operations and sponsorship Rick Dillabough. "The hockey club has been a long-time supporter of many youth oriented and charitable organizations over the years and this has proven to be one of our most popular."

"We encourage groups to contact us about the possibility of securing tickets to one of this year's 'Good Guy' games," he went on to say.

The Wheat Kings are pleased to announce that seven participating sponsors have purchased a block of one thousand tickets, to be distributed at ten designated weekend home games. Those local partners include Assante Wealth Management, Thorpe Construction, BEHLEN, Precision Toyota, Princess Dental and Graham and Christie Garden of ReMax Valleyview Realty of Brandon.

The first home game on this year's Corporate Good Guy schedule is Friday, September 27th when the Wheat Kings play host to the visiting Moose Jaw Warriors at 7:30pm.

Among the many groups that have benefitted from this program over the years are Westman Immigrant Services, Westman Special Olympics, Kid Sport, the Brandon Family Y Kids Program and local Cadet groups.
