Women’s Olympic hockey team gold medalist Dr. Hayley Wickenheiser and Humboldt Broncos bus crash survivor Ryan Straschnitzki will be special guests for “An Evening with the Loan Closet” on June 16.
TLC officials say this fundraising event will include a fun night with a delicious dinner, silent auction and 50/50.
“The community is ready and we want to be one of the first organizations to be able to say ‘Join us!’ We are also very happy to have Dr. Hayley Wickenheiser and Ryan Straschnitzki with us for the evening – two very inspiring people,” explained Dawna Morey, General Manager of TLC.
“Without a doubt, Red Deer is a sports-oriented community,” added Morey. “And what was really unique here was not only seeing two sporting champions, but also seeing two people who have a unique connection to what we do at The Lending Cupboard. Hayley, now being a doctor in her own right , would really understand the need for an organization like ours and the equipment we provide.
