The 2014 Calgary Canucks Sportsmans Dinner and Awards night was held Saturday April 26 at the Calgary Red and White Club.
The event was an overwelming success and was attended by approximately 350 guests.
Master of Ceremonies for the evening was Pat Steinberg, of the Fan 960, who once again did a fantastic job. Thank you Pat for your support of the Calgary Canucks Jr A Hockey program.
Key note speaker for the event was Hall of Famer Daryl Sittler and on more than one occassion he had the entire audiance rolling in laughter with his interesting stories and at the end of the evening got a standing ovation for his efforts. His participation during the evening was nothing short of tremendous mingling with guests throughout the evening signing autographs and posing for photos.
