The HOT SHOTS Street Hockey Tournament raises money to provide summer camp experiences for children and youth served by Family & Children’s Services of the Waterloo Region. Summer camp is an enrichment opportunity allowing children and youth to increase their self-esteem, develop life skills, explore their passions and help build resilience. In 2017, Family and Children’s Services of the Waterloo Region supported nearly 500 kids to go to camp, with help from funds raised through HOT SHOTS.
“Every child should have the opportunity to experience the excitement of summer camp – it helps build resilience and confidence, creates lasting friendships, and teaches vital skills that many children may not have an opportunity to learn otherwise,” says Karen Spencer, Executive Director of the Foundation.
The HOT SHOTS Street Hockey Tournament also features a street fair that offers family friendly activities, barbecue lunch, and a silent auction to raise additional funds for this important cause.
This event is proudly presented by Dryer Moisture Systems, Inc.
