CFL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES THE INAUGURAL LEGENDS CLUB LUNCHEON GREY CUP EVENT

 

CALGARY, AB, October 21st, 2009
The CFL Alumni Association together with partner Calgary Stampeder Alumni Association are pleased to announce the inaugural CFL Alumni Legends Club Luncheon to be held over Grey Cup weekend in Calgary, Alberta Friday, November 27th. This charity event is the first of its kind for the newly established CFL Alumni Association, whereby the goal is to raise money for the ‘Dire Needs Fund’, which offers support to former CFL players experiencing financial or medical hardships.
“All of our CFL Alumni fundraising efforts will result in creating new and exciting events under the umbrella of the CFL and its national celebration and championship- the Grey Cup”, said Leo Ezerins, Executive Director of the newly created CFL Alumni Association. “We are excited to be working with the CFL on TSN panel for this legends club luncheon and profiling some of our hall of fame CFL Alumnus for the passionate fans of the CFL”, said Ezerins.
This inaugural luncheon will feature profiles on Hall of Fame and CFL Alumni members by the CFL on TSN broadcast panel, consisting of Dave Randorf and CFL Alumni members themselves Jock Clime, Matt Dunigan and Chris Shultz. Guests’ fortunate enough to obtain VIP tickets to the event will be privy to a luncheon with Alumni members seated at their table, where they can hear battle and success stories of their playing career while watching Grey Cup moments of the Alumni profiled at the event.
“All of our CFL clubs have stepped up and provided support of our Alumni association and guests of this event can expect to see some of their favorite legends of the game in attendance”, said former player and Calgary Stampeders Alumni President Rocco Romano. “We want this event to be THE Alumni event of the year not only raising money for our Dire Needs Fund where portions of this fund remain within the Calgary community to support amateur football, but as a gathering place for our members to reacquaint with each other and interact with our passionate CFL fan base,” said Romano.
The Alumni Legends Club luncheon will be held Friday, November 27th at Flames Central located at 219 8th Ave SW in Calgary, AB with doors opening at 11:00 am. Tickets are available for sale thru the Alumni Association’s website at www.cflaa.ca where $150 dollar VIP tickets and $75 dollar standing reception style tickets are available.
