Hockey Helps the Homeless raises over $230,000 for youth homelessness in Toronto
As a team sponsor for the event, the Hatch Hockey Helps the Homeless Team had the opportunity to be active members of the local community and helped raise $10,238 for youth homelessness in Toronto. In total, the Bay Street Tournament on June 25th raised over $230,000, and all proceeds will support Eva's Initiatives for Homeless Youth and their work with homeless and at-risk youth in the Greater Toronto Area. Eva's Initiatives gives youth aged 16 to 25 access to emergency shelters, as well as 24/7 crisis support to meet immediate needs including food, housing, and healthcare.
“This is the seventh year Hatch has participated in this annual tournament. We’ll keep coming back, not just because our Hatch Team has so much fun, but more so because the impact on homelessness is clear and the need is great. The housing, skills training, and harm reduction programs that this event supports can be transformational for the lives of local youth,” says Duncan Kluwak, Principal of Advisory Principals at Hatch. “Thanks to all of our fundraisers and donors, but especially to Hatch retiree (and right-winger) Tony Cesta for his long-term out-sized contributions and being an active board member for the event.”
