(WINDSOR, ON) – The 2nd year Public Relations students of St Clair College are bringing their best game face to the gym floor of the Main Campus of the College to Shut Out Hunger. This is a charity event involving community friends, athletes, and leaders facing off with the athletic department of St.Clair College.
The event will take place today starting at 6:00 pm when the puck will be dropped by Miss Canada Priya Madaan.
The community All-Star Team is made up of competitors and friends such as Harry Young, the two-time Memorial Cup winner, Nelson Santos, Mayor of Kingsville, police officers from the Windsor Police Service and various community partners.
Second year St Clair College Public Relations students Laurie Harrison, Helen Medel, Bill Chatman, and Jeff Castaneda are leading the charge with the event as the hosts and planners. This hardworking group of students have spent hours to ensure that many cans and other food donations will come in the game.
Participants and spectators are asked to bring in a food donation as their admission to the floor hockey game. The food donations will support the Windsor Essex Food Bank and St Clair College Food Bank. This event is part of the Public Relation second year program in which the students are asked to give back to their community and plan a charity event.
“As a public relations students, we understand the importance of being connected to our community,” said Harrison. “We wanted to do an event that would connect St Clair College and the Windsor Essex Community. The idea of food donations was the perfect fit as it would support the College’s food bank program. The community portion of the event was choosing The Windsor Essex Food Bank, which we all feel is so important.”
Harrison and her fellow students are inviting all members of Windsor Essex to come out, bring a food donation, and to help Shut Out Hunger. The puck drops at 6:00 pm and there will be food, drinks, raffle prizes, and a 50/50 draw.
The game will take place in the original gymnasium of St Clair College on the Main Campus.
