The 6th Annual Lindros Celebrity Classic was held on November 2 and 3rd, and it was nothing short of AMAZING! Congratulations to our 16 teams, led by their incredible team captains. The Draft Party was a lot of fun as the Leaderboard was red hot with last minute moves and big donations! It really could have gone in favour of any of the top three teams, but the final curtain call saw McCam Insurance sitting in the first overall draft pick, selecting none other then Eric Lindros as their captain. Congratulations to a well fought battle with defending champ, and runner up, EAST PENN CANADA, and 3rd pick, 9 Point Partners. All teams did an exceptional job of fundraising, so kudos to all participants for really shining and helping kids BE KIDS.
