This initiative is to raise money and to promote awareness about the programs and services we provide to tackle the challenges faced by hunger and homelessness. A three–year partnership with the Wolves is an integral part of the ongoing support needed for the success of this grass roots agency and providing support for over 600 children and 2000 individuals monthly.
50/50 tickets will be available at all home games and a new on–line 50/50 draw will also be launched across the province. To purchase tickets, visit innercitywolves5050.com and watch for QR codes throughout the city.
Individuals, moving through life are a society, many individuals working together, is a community. It will take a collective effort to really make a difference in the lives of those suffering in poverty. This partnership is in addition to a partnership already in place with many down town businesses known as The Collective. The agency is also partnered with the membership of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 564 in Lockerby who will be the primary volunteer ticket sellers at each home game. Go wolves.
Joe Drago, Board President, “on behalf of the Board of Directors, I extend a sincere thank you to Dario Zulich and the entire Sudbury Wolves organization for recognizing the necessity to assist needy families and children in our community, we are delighted to have this partnership.
“Tough times are among us, we need to work together and be part of the many solutions needed to address homelessness and hunger in our community,” states Jennifer Grooms, Executive Director of Foyer Inner–City Home. She goes on to say that “partnerships are the key to help make things happen. By supporting this and purchasing 50/50 tickets, you too can be part of the solutions.”
“We want to thank our past 50/50 partner in the United Way for the great run over the past three seasons and putting over $200,000 back into the community. However today, we are very excited to begin this new partnership with Foyer Inner-City Home Sudbury and to continue supporting the Greater Sudbury Community,” said Sudbury Wolves Owner and Governor Dario Zulich. “We would like to thank Michael Cullen for championing this initiative as well as Inner-City Home chair Joe Drago. We have a tremendous relationship with both Michael and Joe and are excited to build on it through Inner–City Home. As a former owner of the Wolves and Vice Chair of Hockey Canada, we are pleased to announce that Joe Drago will become our first lifetime Wolves member in honour of his commitment to the Greater Sudbury Community, the Wolves organization, and the sport of hockey,” added Zulich.
