Highlights of the Evening

Community Mix and Mingle warm up
Kick-start the evening and catch up with business and community friends over a drink and light appetizers.

Special guest speaker, decorated CFL receiver, Andy Fantuz

Andy Fantuz’s phenomenal 12 year CFL career with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Saskatchewan Roughriders has earned both community love and a list of celebrated honours. One of the best Canadian receivers ever to play in the CFL, Andy played in 5 Grey Cup games, winning one and earning the Dick Suderman Trophy as the game’s most valuable Canadian two times. Ranked 4thall-time among Canadians in receptions and 18thoverall in CFL history, Andy kick-started his CFL career through winning the Hec Crighton Trophy as most outstanding Canadian football player in university sports.

Recently announcing his retirement from the CFL in July 2018, Andy has made an awesome impact off the field too as a great ambassador and role model with an active commitment to supporting community – while holding a special place in his heart for mentoring and supporting youth in sports and recreation.  Wholeheartedly believing that football is all about sharing, and that the strength of the team relies on each individual member, Andy will share personal, inspiring stories from both on and off the field.
