Cure Cancer Classic
The Cure Cancer Classic announced today that tickets are currently on sale for the popular Queen’s Commerce Vs. Engineering Rivalry Game to be held Thursday, March 2nd, 2023, at the Leon’s Centre in Kingston, Ontario.
“The Queen’s Commerce/Engineering Rivalry Game is an event that unites our community through the game of hockey and raises important funds and awareness to support those currently battling, living with, and moving past cancer,” said Amy Janes and Robert Hume, CCC’s co-chairs, “We thank everyone in the Queen’s and Kingston communities for their support as well as our sponsors and partners who have joined us in our effort to drop the gloves against cancer.”
The Commerce vs. Engineering Rivalry Hockey Game was founded in 2017 as part of the Cure Cancer Classic’s annual schedule of fundraising events and has quickly become a seasonal highlight for both players and fans alike.
The Queen’s Commerce vs. Engineering Rivalry game is hosted by the Cure Cancer Classic, a student-run not-for-profit organization at Queen’s University with a mission to raise money through various hockey tournaments and fundraising events throughout the year.
Last year’s game saw the Commerce team victorious with a dramatic 2-1 shootout win in front of a sold-out crowd of 5,000 fans at Leon’s Centre in Kingston. The event contributed to the Cure Cancer Classic’s 2022 record fundraising total of $339,000 raised for the year, adding to the $1,000,000 fundraising total achieved by the executive this year.
“The Canadian Cancer Society is so appreciative and fortunate to be working closely with the Cure Cancer Classic team again this year,” said Doug Kane, the Canadian Cancer Society director of independent fundraising and sports alliances.
“They are an extremely dedicated and passionate group of students having a significant impact on the cancer landscape. The funds they raise support the amazing cancer research being conducted at the Canadian Cancer Trials Group located here in Kingston.”
