Posted in: Lifestyle

Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni Charity Hockey Game

On February 18th, the small town of Castor, Alberta welcomed the Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni hockey team! This charity hockey game was organized as a fundraiser for the Town of Castor’s arena, lovingly referred to as The Beaverdome. The sold out game was a major success and Castor Minor Sports was pleased to announce that this event raised a whopping $30,000 to contribute to the arena renovations and upgrades!
