Edmonton, Alberta -- April 18, 2018 -- The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation, in association with CARSTAR, recently presented a $12,750 donation to Brandon Newell of Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
The initiative comprised of a $500 donation from CARSTAR for every overtime game played by the Oilers. This amount was matched by $250 from the Oilers Community Foundation. The overtime donation commitment continued until the team’s season ended this past week.
“The Edmonton Oilers are an outstanding partner for CARSTAR as they care and support the causes that are close to CARSTAR and our culture,” says Mike Piper, Western zone director, CARSTAR. “We have been a proud supporter of Cystic Fibrosis Canada for over 20 years, and it is incredible knowing that when we support the Oilers, we are also supporting a terrific cause.”
The charitable donation from both CARSTAR and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation will go directly to Cystic Fibrosis Canada, an organization committed to research, care and advocacy in the battle against cystic fibrosis.
“The Edmonton Oilers are a driven organization with everyone behind this company committed to the community and the causes it supports,” says Brandon Newell, a representative from Cystic Fibrosis Canada. “My family has been affected by cystic fibrosis, but the diagnosis does not define us, rather it drives us into finding these influential partners to help us finally get to a cure.”
