2010 Flood Thank You Event

The City of Medicine Hat invites everyone who was involved with the 2010 flood to a free tailgate party and Medicine Hat Tigers hockey game on Saturday, September 11, 2010.

The first exhibition game of the Medicine Hat Tigers is traditionally a Charity Classic fund raising event and this year’s benefiting organization is the Medicine Hat Regional Hospice Palliative Care Society. As the City has purchased tickets to distribute to volunteers, workers, other stakeholders and those affected by the recent flood, the Hospice Palliative Care Society will benefit from the increase in ticket sales.

“The Charity Classic is a great way to accomplish several objectives simultaneously,” says Fire Chief Rob Robinson who served as Director of Emergency Management during the flood. “By working collaboratively with the Tigers organization we offer an opportunity for a fun-filled evening for everyone who was involved in one way or another during and post flood while at the same time, supporting the Hospice Palliative Care Society by increasing proceeds from ticket sales. We look forward to the community coming together following this extraordinary flood event to recognize the generosity and unselfish acts of neighbors helping neighbors, and thought the tailgate party and hockey game would accomplish this in a classy way.”

A tailgate party along with a free barbecue will run from 5 to 7 p.m. for all ticket holders. The Charity Classic Hockey game with the Tigers going up against Swift Current Broncos will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets to the 2010 Flood Thank You event are now available from volunteer organizations, the Volunteer Centre, Cypress County Office or Community Development, third floor of City Hall.
