Calgary, Alta. – The Western Hockey League announced today that nearly $160,000 has been raised in support of Children’s Miracle Network through the RE/MAX Presents: Nickelodeon Night campaign.
From November through March, RE/MAX Presents: Nickelodeon Nights for Children’s Miracle Network has brought to WHL arenas the fun, irreverent energy and characters of some of Nickelodeon’s most popular franchises, including SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and PAW Patrol (Produced by Spin Master Entertainment).
Through the auctioning of special theme jerseys and other fundraising initiatives tied to the campaign, WHL Clubs collectively raised $159,532.60 in support of Children’s Miracle Network.
“RE/MAX is grateful for this opportunity to once again collaborate with the WHL and expand on our ongoing support of Children’s Miracle Network,” says Elton Ash, Executive Vice President of RE/MAX Canada. “The money raised through this initiative will go a long way toward supporting the communities in which we live and work, while highlighting the life-saving work that CMN hospitals do.”
“RE/MAX has been a supportive partner of Children’s Miracle Network for over 30 years, and a true innovator in engaging Canadians with the cause of children’s healthcare and raising funds for local Children’s hospital foundations,” notes Tracey Culleton, Vice-President, Corporate Partnerships at Canada’s Children’s Hospital Foundations. “The RE/MAX Presents: Nickelodeon Night for Children’s Miracle Network program, done in partnership with the Western Hockey League, is a great example, bringing the needs of local hospital foundations in Western Canada right into the hockey arena, and achieving incredible success in a very short time. I can’t wait to see how this program develops this year, and in the years to come.”
“Together with our longstanding sponsor RE/MAX, the WHL is pleased to play a role in supporting the Children’s Miracle Network,” commented WHL Commissioner Ron Robison. “The RE/MAX Presents: Nickelodeon Night for Children’s Miracle Network game nights represented a new initiative that injected the energy of Nickelodeon characters into WHL arenas and, most importantly, afforded us an opportunity to generate financial support for local children’s hospitals throughout Western Canada.”
Across 17 Canadian markets, WHL Clubs celebrated a Nickelodeon theme night, complete with special theme jerseys, branded creative, video content, music, and in-game activations. Funds raised through RE/MAX Presents: Nickelodeon Nights for Children’s Miracle Network will go towards supporting local children’s hospitals in Western Canada, including the BC Children’s Hospital, Stollery Children’s Hospital, Alberta Children’s Hospital, Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital, and Children’s Hospital of Manitoba.
