Tretiak Coming To Toronto November 26th
The Vladislav Tretiak Foundation and the Canada Eurasia Russia Business Association (CERBA) will be holding a charity auction at the Hockey Hall of Fame on November 26th, 2009 at 6pm. The guest of honour will be Vladislav Tretiak, the Soviet goaltending legend and general manager of the 2010 Russian Olympic team.
CERBA has held charity auctions in Moscow every year since 2002, raising money to help orphans, improve schools and sporting facilities and provide equipment to hospitals in rural Russia. In February 2009 they raised $130,000 US.
This will be the first ever CERBA silent auction outside of Russia.
Event prizes and auction items will include outstanding hockey memorabilia from the 1972 Summit Series and around the NHL, fine jewelry, personal tours of the Russian State Duma, exquisite dinners and many more exciting items. Proceeds will benefit children charities in both Canada and Russia.
