A series of annual charitable hockey fundraising events taking place in communities across Canada with various NHL alumni teams and celebrities, HHC 2018 consists of two events: A Gala dinner at the Military Museums on Saturday, December 8, 2018, followed by the Game the next day at 2pm at the Max Bell Centre.
All proceeds raised from both the Gala and Hockey Game will be shared by the PPCLI Foundation and the Military Museums Foundation – in support of programs for Canada’s serving military, veterans and their families, and military history programs for Albertan youths. Now in its seventh year, HHC events have raised more than $350,000 to date.
