Over the next two weeks I’ll be featuring a series of posts about the Juno Awards as they will be hosted in Vancouver on March 28th. My series will feature the awards themselves (from my view in the press box), satellite events, the street festival, and even the people involved in the process, such as the Uptown Gift Box Company.

On Friday March 27th at the shiny new UBC Thunderbird Arena, NHL alumni will hit the ice and take on Canadian musicians in the Juno Cup.

junocupJuno Cup is an ever-growing popular event among fans that mixes music with sport, matching NHL alumni with top artists and entertainers in support of MusiCounts, Canada’s music education charity, associated with CARAS. Juno Cup has helped raise more than $700,000 for MusiCounts and music programs across Canada.

Canuck fan favourites such as Cliff Ronning, Dave Babych, Garth Butcher and Gino Odjick will take on the likes of Barney Bentall, Craig Northey, Sarah McLachlan, Aaron Pritchett and Captain Scotty from the CFOX morning show (just to name a few).

Tickets are $14.99 and available online, the puck drops at 7:30pm.
