Learn how, in just three months, North Edmonton Kia and members of the Edmonton Oilers raised $30,000 for the Stollery Children Hospital Foundation.
In November 2022, we invited members of our community to an exclusive signing event with #71 Ryan McLeod and #37 Warren Foegele of the Edmonton Oilers, with the hopes of raising $10,000 for the Stollery through the purchase of Oilers merchandise.
After the overwhelming support we received, North Edmonton Kia asked the players to sign more merchandise that we could make available for purchase, donating 100% of the proceeds to the Stollery.
On January 27th, North Edmonton Kia and four members of the Edmonton Oilers visited the
the Stollery Children's Hospital to deliver a check for $30,000.
For those who were able to donate their time and money to this, we want to extend our thanks - you helped make a huge difference to the lives of children in need!
As well as thank both Ryan and Warren for their help in our mission.
