Okotoks Oilers Present - An Evening with Sheldon Kennedy
Posted April 23rd, 2017 @ 9:34 pm

Do you ever think about your life and hope you have a good second act?

Something great you can do after whatever it is you're doing? Maybe I could be like Justin Timberlake after NSYNC - Or Mario Lemieux the Owner after Mario Lemieux the Player? I mean, I realize I need a much better Act One, but it's something to aim for.

Sheldon Kennedy's life was almost just one act - one act that goes very badly and ends in tragedy. A tragedy because the world already saw him as a hero, a man who was the first professional hockey player to talk about
sexual abuse, a man who had his act together and was helping fix a huge wrong in the world, a man living a lie.

Today, Sheldon Kennedy is synonymous with courage and greatness. His Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre is the first of its kind in Canada and the world. He has spoken with prime ministers and presidents; he has spoken to the Senate in the United States. He has been awarded the highest civilian award in our country - as a member of the Order of Canada.

Join us on Thursday June 8 for an evening with Sheldon Kennedy

5:30 pm  Cocktails
6:30 pm  Dinner with Program to follow

Location: Foothills Centennial Centre (204 Community Way – right next door to the Pason Centennial Arena)
