March 3, 2023 will be Hall of Fame night at Portage College. For the first time since 2019, the College will host the Student Scholarship Fundraising Dinner, featuring Hockey Hall of Famers Kevin Lowe and Doug Gilmour and two new inductees into the Lac La Biche County Sports Hall of Fame.
The evening, presented by Cenovus Energy, will start with cocktails at 5:30 p.m., followed by a delicious prime rib meal, live and silent auctions and some fun games. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on unique items and experiences, all while supporting a worthy cause. They will also be treated to Lowe and Gilmour telling tales about their days on opposite sides of the Oilers-Flames rivalry as well as their time with teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers, and Montreal Canadiens.
Tickets are $125 each or $1,000 per table. All proceeds from the event will go directly to support Portage's Student Scholarship Endowment.
“After a four-year hiatus we are thrilled to bring our community together for a night of good food, and entertainment to raise funds for our students,” said Nancy Broadbent, President and CEO of Portage College. “This event is an important part of our efforts to make a difference in the lives of students, and we hope that everyone will come out to show their support.”
An added bonus this year will be the induction of Ken Scullion and Randy Wowk into the Lac La Biche County Sports Hall of Fame, which recognizes local athletes and individuals who have made significant contributions to sports in Lac La Biche County.
Rick Flumian, Community Relations Manager at Portage College, is thrilled to partner with the County to celebrate the significant contributions of two exemplary people.
“It is an honour to recognize the achievements of Ken Scullion and Randy Wowk,” he said. “Their dedication and hard work have made a tremendous impact on our region and we are proud to celebrate their success along with Lac La Biche County.”
