Gateway’s big event of 2014 included a hockey game featuring a plethora of acclaimed past and present NHL and other professional-level stars. With over 700 people in attendance the crowds roared, cheered, and laughed as the Goderich YMCA rumbled with excitement. The Hometown Heroes: Raise a Little Health 2014 event split profits of over $40,000 between Gateway, the Alexandra Marine and General Hospital, and the Goderich YMCA and tremendous help from the office of MP Ben Lobb, helped raise awareness of common rural health issues, and brought the community together, attracting guests from all over Ontario. Gateway is proud to announce that the Hometown Heroes event will run again in the summer of 2015. This year there are plans to produce and sell 1200 tickets, nearly double that of the amount offered last year! Preparations for the upcoming event have already begun, and we hope that the end result will be one magnificent night that you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
