On May 31, 2015, the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation and the YM-YWHA (the “Y”) presented the fourth annual Hockey de rue – Together for the Kids street hockey tournament at the Y on Westbury Ave. in Snowdon. The event brought players and sponsors together to raise over $250,000 this year, bringing the four-year total of this annual fundraising event above $1 Million, all for the benefit of kids. With the help of major corporate sponsors including Prével, six youth teams from underprivileged communities of Montreal played in their own tournament under the guidance of P.K. Subban. The Montreal Canadiens star defenceman believes in an active lifestyle and is proud to act as a mentor for these kids.
The annual Hockey de rue – Together for the Kids street hockey tournament is a charitable event that combines two things Montrealers love to do: help kids and play hockey! As honorary Chairman of the event, former Habs legend Patrice Brisebois was on hand to sign autographs and, together with Habs mascot Youppi! Montreal Canadiens Alumni played in a Legends game versus a spirited team from the popular Joe Beef restaurant in Montreal.
The 10 kids who played on Prével’s PK Subban team come from Lasalle, and aside from meeting some of the Habs hockey legends at this year’s Hockey de rue tournament, took home memories that will last a lifetime. Prével is proud to support the Montreal community through its sponsorship of this worthwhile cause.
The Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation’s goal is to encourage children to adopt healthy lifestyles by being more active and eating better while the Y provides services to promote the social, cultural, recreational and intellectual needs of over 10,000 members, users and guests of all age groups, with a particular focus on children and youth.
