Alumni Game Raises Over $11,000 for CMHA Oxford

Leafs Alumni game will help support CMHA Oxford Walk-In Counselling Programs.

WOODSTOCK - The Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni Game was another huge success for the Canadian Mental Health Association of Oxford County.

A sold out crowd got to cheer on the Oxford County Stars against the leafs alumni team captained by gritty fan favourite Darcy Tucker. The event raised a remarkable $11,739 for the CMHA and all of the money will go towards the Walk-In Counselling programs across Oxford County. CMHA Oxford Executive Director Mike McMahon says the game itself was great and the event as a whole does wonders for their organization.  

“The awareness, goodwill and anti-stigma energy created by the Maple Leafs 4 Mental Health game, is not measurable in terms of dollars. The additional contribution of $11,000 from the event supports Oxford Walk-In Counselling offered across the County of Oxford.”

This was the second time the CMHA has been successful in filling every seat at Southwood Arena; in 2014 the Montreal Canadiens Alumni visited the Oxford County Stars in a sold-out event.

The Canadian Mental Health Association, Oxford serves the entire County of Oxford with full service offices in Ingersoll, Tillsonburg, and Woodstock. To learn about other upcoming fundraiser's for the branch, visit their website at www.cmhaoxford.on.ca.
