The 2018 Mastercard Memorial Cup Host Committee, is pleased to announce the addition of The Mosaic Company as the official Supporting Sponsor for the School Kids Program at the upcoming 100th anniversary edition of the iconic junior hockey championship.
“We’re very pleased to see Mosaic step forward and commit to this event,” says Shaun Semple, Chair of Regina’s Host Committee. “The company has a long history as active community-builders and it is wonderful to see them reach out to involve school children from communities across the province in this exciting, once-in-a-lifetime hockey celebration!”
As part of the company’s diverse commitment to Saskatchewan, Mosaic will bring over 1,000 grade 4 and 5 students from Regina schools, and eight Saskatchewan First Nation schools, to participate in hockey-themed activities at the Mastercard Memorial Cup during FanFest. From May 22-25, students will explore major displays from the Hockey Hall of Fame and Canadian Armed Forces and participate in the creation of a large mural commemorating 100 years of junior hockey history in Canada.
“The Mastercard Memorial Cup does not visit Saskatchewan very often. To host a world-class event right here in Regina speaks to the commitment of this community to once again warmly welcome hockey fans from far and wide to our City,” says Mosaic Senior Vice President- Potash, Bruce Bodine. We’re excited to give youth living in First Nation communities near our operations and students throughout Regina an opportunity to experience the excitement of this 100th edition of an incredible Canadian event.”
Supporting organizations and events that matter to Saskatchewan is not new to Mosaic. Whether it’s giving fans an amazing place to cheer through partnerships with Mosaic Stadium and Mosaic Place, supporting local WHL hockey talent like the Regina Pats, Moose Jaw Warriors and Saskatoon Blades, or most recently watching teams “hurry hard” as presenting sponsor of the 2018 Tim Horton’s Brier, Mosaic is committed to giving back to a province that 2,200 of its employees call home.
The Host Committee is anticipating further sponsorship announcements in the coming weeks, as there continues to be considerable interest from both local and national organizations.
