‘Start the Spark’ will take place during the Calgary Inferno game against the Vanke Rays, one of two CWHL teams from China, at WinSport Arena A at 6:30 p.m. MST Saturday, January 20. The Inferno will wear limited edition purple jerseys, provided by Shane Homes to auction off in support of the SKCAC. The link to bid on the jerseys will be available on the Inferno website and shared on social media for one week after the game. Members from the SKCAC as well as the Canadian Mental Health Association will have booths at the game and provide resources and education about mental health.
The game also has a special ticket campaign, whereby sponsors and donors purchase tickets for others to attend the game. Fans will also receive a free ‘Start the Spark’ purple t-shirt while supplies last. HMC Lawyers has stepped up to sponsor $5,000 worth of tickets and admission will be free for anyone under 18. Through this initiative, youth from across the city will have an opportunity to attend the game with their families, friends and peers to celebrate their mental health.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased in advance https://store.thecwhl.com/collections/calgary-inferno-tickets or at the door.
