The Maple Leafs held their 20th annual Have A Heart dinner presented by AM640 Tuesday at Earth Bloor West. It was another successful event as hundreds of fans were able to mix and mingle with their favourite players, coaches, their wives and partners along with general manager Brian Burke.
Fans bid on silent auction items such as two Harley Davidson jackets donated by Mike Brown, his and her Citizens watches donated by Dion Phaneuf, a GM experience with Brian Burke that included watching the morning skate, a lunch at Real Sports Bar and Grill before watching the game in the management box.
The night wrapped up with two exceptional items: A fan and 10 friends were able to win the chance to play a game of hockey at Wendel Clark’s rink; the final item was a fishing trip with Brian Burke on Lake Ontario and dinner at Eleven for four guests.
The event raised $200,000 for the MLSE Team Up Foundation with the money being invested into a new rink at Sunnydale in Rexdale over the next month with the Leafs opening the rink on January 4th.
